Unity Books and The Tuwhiri Project warmly invite you to hear Girol Karacaoglu in conversation with Ramsey Margolis on Girol's new book, Love You. All welcome.
Love you: Public Policy for Intergenerational Wellbeing.
For the philosopher Walter Kaufman, ‘I love you’ means: ‘I want you to live the life that you want to live. I will be as happy as you if you do; and as unhappy as you if you don’t.’ So, how would we design, implement and evaluate public policy if it were based on our love for future generations? This book examines the processes by which wellbeing-focused public policy objectives are established, prioritised, funded, implemented, managed, and evaluated, while ensuring that they remain relevant as social preferences change over time.
Girol Karacaoglu is the Head of the School of Government at Victoria University of Wellington.
