WORKSHOP: Short Course: Government Accountability Law and Practice 2014
|Short Course: Government Accountability Law and Practice 2014
Government Accountability – Law and Practice
Continuing professional development course ideal for those working in government or government related organisations.
The continuing growth of government in recent decades
has led to a rise in the number (and reach) of accountability agencies, so much so that some commentators now talk of the emergence of a fourth branch of government – the ‘integrity’ branch.
In this course we will explore:
- the place of government in the modern state, and the
how and why of government accountability;
- accountability frameworks (with reference to traditional
and contemporary administrative law, political
structures, the media, academia and non-government
- the theoretical underpinnings, development, evolving
law and practice, and regulation of various accountability
In the Western Australian context, particular reference will
be made to the Corruption and Crime Commission (and the
relevant Parliamentary Inspector), the Inspector of Custodial Services, the Ombudsman, the Auditor-General, the Public Sector Commissioner, and the Information Commissioner.
National and international comparison will be drawn at
Professor Chris Field (Western Australian Ombudsman and Adjunct Professor, UWA Faculty of Law) and Professor Simon Young (UWA Faculty of Law)
