I am the Director BA (External Connections), in which capacity I promote the many merits of Massey's BA to external audiences. I'm also a Professor of Politics. I convene and teach Turangawaewae: Identity and Belonging in Aotearoa New Zealand, one of the core first year papers in the BA.

Research Expertise

Research Interests

My research interests have to do with the nature of Cabinet government, public sector reform and new public management. I am also interested in governance theory, and in the core executive studies and public value literatures.

I have a particular interest in the roles and influence of ministers' political advisers (both nationally and internationally). Work which I have done in this area - often with Victoria University's Chris Eichbaum - has been published in leading journals such as Governance, Public Administration, Parliamentary Affairs and Public Management Review.

Project Title: Strightening the spin: the roles of ministerial advisors

In recent years the number of politically appointed staff in the Beehive has grown. New Zealand government ministers have long drawn on the advice of impartial public servants, but recourse to partisan ministerial advisers is a relatively new phenomenon. Until very recently, little was known about these advisers. As a result of this project, however, we now know much more about the number of political advisers; the work they do; the nature of their relationships with ministers, public servants and other political actors; and the influence they wield.
