Launch: Jonathan Boston's new BWB text

Launch: Jonathan Boston's new BWB text

In an era of populist politics, Brexit, Donald Trump, 24-hour news cycles and perpetual election campaigning, Jonathan Boston's new BWB text arrives at a much needed time. In his Safeguarding the Future, Boston asks how we can govern well for the future. How do we take the long view, ensuring that present-day policy decisions reflect the needs and safeguard the interests of future generations?

Join the Institute for Governance and Policy Studies (Victoria Univeristy of Wellington) and BWB to celebrate the launch of this new text!

The launch is being held on Thursday 23 March, 5.40-6.30pm, at the Banquet Hall in Parliament Buildings. Safeguarding the Future will be launched together with Boston's new full-length book, Governing for the Future: Designing Democratic Institutions for a Better Tomorrow.

Speakers: Peter Hughes, State Services Commissioner; Bridget Williams.

Please RSVP by emailling igps@vuw.ac.nz by 17 March. 

Note: This event is not managed by BWB.
