New Zealand public service: past, present and future

5 May 2013

2012 was the 100th anniversary of the passing of the Public Service Act - an Act that defined the public service for the best part of a century. This year it's the turn of the Public Service Association to celebrate its centenary. Jeremy Rose talks to historian Mark Derby about his most recent book on one of the union's most effective leaders - White Collar Radical: Dan Long and the Rise of the White Collar Unions; and Chris Laidlaw speaks to former government statistician Len Cook and Bill Ryan, an associate professor at Victoria University's School of Government and the co-author of Future State: Directions for Public Management in New Zealand, about the state of the public service and how it might evolve in the future.
