Social Justice

Governments around the world are facing deficits in both effectiveness and legitimacy. A deficit of effectiveness because our models of government are ill-equipped to tackle some of the most urgent issues we face as a society. And a deficit of legitimacy because people feel increasingly disillusioned with government and see it as distant and impersonal. Making government more effective and legitimate requires more than simply changing processes and practices. We need a refreshed vision for government founded on a new set of beliefs, values and principles that prioritise complexity, relationships and experimentation.
