The latest issue of Public Sector | Rāngai Tūmatanui — produced by the Institute of Public Administration New Zealand — is now available.

The December issue of Public Sector contains several articles that focus on how New Zealand’s new Public Service Act 2020 changes the operations of the public service. In one of these articles, Shenagh Gleisner engages Lil Anderson of Te Arawhiti, The Office for Māori Crown Relations, in a Q&A about what public servants are doing, and what they can do, to change Māori Crown relations.

Also featured is a conversation with six public sector leaders on how they see stewardship working in the public service, and Christine Langdon investigates the pressures of middle managers in her piece ‘Middle Managers as Change Leaders’.

For anyone wanting to develop a deeper understanding of what it means to pursue the public interest, then Associate Professor Rodney Scott’s piece, ‘Pursuing the Public Interest’, is a must-read.

Public Sector is published quarterly.

The latest issue can now be viewed as a digital download.
