Victorian Association for Dispute Resolution

Reflections from a Career in Government Oversight

Thursday 22 July 2021 at 6pm by Zoom
Professor John McMillan


If you would like to attend, please email admin@vadr.asn.au.


Government oversight bodies tackle two key societal concerns – the accountability and integrity of government agencies, and the resolution of complaints from the community against those agencies. An extensive oversight framework now operates in Australia through the work of numerous ombudsmen, auditors-general, inspectors-general, anti-corruption agencies, information commissioners and human rights bodies. This form of ADR began in Australia mostly in the late 1970s, just before the first attempts at mediation.
In this presentation, John will share his thoughts on the qualities of the Australian government oversight framework, challenges he has faced in complaint investigations, and lessons he has learnt to achieve results and steer clear of controversy.
