New Zealand is well known as a pioneer in many aspects of public management and governance. The appetite for public sector innovation continues apace guided by sound stewardship and driven by demonstrable impact.  At the centre of this activity is Wellington, a compact, lively capital city that  offers an unparalleled opportunity to directly engage with parliament and most of the government agencies.

The deadline for Abstract Submissions has been extended from the 19 October 2018 till 31 October 2018, followed by the review period extension to 5 December 2018.
