Message from our Director

I am Associate Professor Caitlin Blaser Mapitsa, the Research Director at School.

We are a research led School, and the change we hope to create is by bringing practitioners into a facilitated space of sharing ideas, and through case-based peer learning, build contextually relevant theory that can contribute to excellence in governance.
