In recent years, you could be forgiven for thinking the term 'competent government' has become something of an oxymoron. But as we seem to lurch from crisis to crisis, what is really going on? Cambridge academic Dennis C Grube is on hand to enlighten us. He has been examining government failures and successes; what they get right and what they get terribly wrong, and how that affects the rest of us. Being in government is tough, but Grube believes there is a way to govern well. Come and hear how our politicians could do better.
