Public life in Malta : papers on governance, politics and public affairs in the EU's smallest member state : Vol. 2 / 3 Collection home page Statistics


"There are various reasons why I believe this book stands out and is so welcome. The tapestry of themes and issues explored in this second volume make this edition of Public Life in Malta truly unique. In one of the fragments of Heraclitus’ (c. 500 BC) work, the aphorism ‘the only constant is change’ was found. There is no contention that two and a half millennia after, change remains a constant and public policy is one of the platforms to understand how and why. This book provides an array of concepts and frames them against contemporary issues, as a lens to understand contextualized phenomena. Through different writing styles, it maps empirical applications to theoretical foundations suggesting frameworks of understanding that transcend national borders whenever the case warrants. Whether it is a post-colonial setting, an autonomous national remit, or a supranational perspective (EU related matters), Public Life in Malta offers essential reading." Dr. George VItal Zammit. Head, Department of Public Policy.
