Jane Fountain, Distinguished University Professor at the School of Public Policy (SPP) and the department of political science, is among a small group of global experts invited to publish an article in the inaugural issue of the Dubai Policy Review Journal.
Fountain’s article, “The Wicked Nature of Digital Transformation: A Policy Perspective,” offers recommendations on how public management leaders and policymakers can effectively strengthen policy and design outcomes to address complex problems during a time of digital transformation.
“As computing becomes more widely used in the Gulf states, the policies leaders craft to guide digitalization will influence the potential for social, economic and political developments,” Fountain noted.
The issue was released during the recent UAE Public Policy Forum. The Dubai Policy Review Journal is published by the Mohammed Bin Rashid School of Government. The inaugural issue was widely distributed to ministers, directors of government agencies and senior policy makers across the Arab region, in both Arabic and English.
“Technology and governance is a key area of emphasis in the School of Public Policy,” said Alasdair Roberts, SPP director. “We're fortunate to have one of the world's leading experts on this topic on our faculty.”
