Professor Ariadne Vromen is the Bunting Chair of Public Administration in the Crawford School of Public Policy and Deputy Dean (Research) at the Australia and New Zealand School of Government.

Please note Professor Vromen is on study leave this semester and will be in the UK until mid June.

Her research interests are diverse, and include: citizen engagement, digital politics and governance, women and the future of work, policy advocacy, and young people and politics.

In mid-2020 she started an ARC Linkage project ‘Designing Gender Equality into the Future of Work’ with colleagues at the University of Sydney that contrasts change and technological disruption in the retail and legal industries.

Professor Vromen is also currently working with long-term collaborators on two books: one on online petitions, citizen engagement and politics; the other on storytelling and policy advocacy.

All her research interests are underpinned by an interest in political equality and social justice – and these core questions of redistribution and recognition will be even more important to address via post-Covid19 policymaking and civil society organising.
