ANZSOG is currently revamping its research strategy with a new demand-led, practice-driven and collaborative approach to research based on our unique ability to connect academics and practitioners. ANZSOG is are consulting with its government owners and university partners about the design, funding and delivery of new research projects.
These projects will be shaped by these consultations, and driven by the key issues and questions raised by governments and universities. ANZSOG will focus on issues with multi-jurisdictional relevance, as part of a broader mandate to work for the governments of Australia and New Zealand.
ANZSOG’s new approach to research is being led by Dr Subho Banerjee.
ANZSOG papers commissioned for the APS Review
ANZSOG was commissioned to produce six major papers for the Independent Review of the Australian Public Service (APS). Lead authors were drawn from a mix of academic and practitioner backgrounds. The work was completed and released into the public domain for broader public discussion in April 2019, and has influenced the interim report of the Review.
ANZSOG supports a range of other research-based activities including the Case Library; policy roundtables; commissioned reports and frameworks for government; the Evidence Base journal; our conferences; the Evidence and Evaluation Hub; the Work-Based Project; and a monograph series with ANU Press.
