Mark BevirProfessor Bevir (pictured) will be talking about how the public sector has been transformed since 1979.  Successive governments have sought to replace bureaucratic organization with market mechanisms and formal and informal networks. This talk will explore the forms of social science that inspired these changes and also ask where that leaves the public sector today. 

‌The lecture is titled: ‘A New Governance: Hierarchy, Markets, and Networks, cc. 1979-2015’ and will be preceded by light refreshments at 6pm in the Wallace Building, Swansea University. 

Prof Bevir is also a Professor in the Graduate School of Governance, United Nations University (MERIT), and a Distinguished Research Professor in the College of Arts and Humanities at Swansea University.

The Rees lecture is named after John C Rees who was born in Maesteg in 1919 and was the first Professor of Political Theory and Government at Swansea University, then called University College, Swansea, in 1953. 

The lecture is organised by the College of Arts and Humanities.
