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 organisations); and - the theoretical underpinnings, development, evolving law and practice, and regulation of various accountability agencies.

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 various points.
Speaker(s) Professor Chris Field (Western Australian Ombudsman and Adjunct Professor, UWA Faculty of Law) and Professor Simon Young (UWA Faculty of Law)
