Join us for the Queensland launch of CEDA's Setting Public Policy report to discuss policy making, policy breaking, implementation and reform.

Report case study commentators include: the Honourable Nick Greiner AC; Dr Allan Hawke AC; Dr Ken Henry AC; the Honourable John Howard AC; the Honourable Jeff Kennett AC and Terry Moran AC.
