For excellent public policy, it is necessary to have a clear idea of both the ends to be achieved (including equity, quality and efficiency), and the means for achieving those ends (including the structure of motivation and incentives, and the appropriate balance between market and state). Julian has made major contributions in all of these areas, and this Seminar is an opportunity for distinguished academics and commentators to reflect on his work while developing their own ideas. Speakers include Professor Carol Propper of Imperial College and the University of Bristol; Professor Peter Taylor-Gooby of the University of Kent; Nick Timmins, Public Policy Editor of the Financial Times; Professor Albert Weale of University College, London; and, of course, Julian himself.
