| Capitalism versus World Market Capitalism
The first decade of the 21st century is witnessing the emergence of a new social formation, with characteristics quite distinct from those of late 20th century Capitalism. The origins of this new face of Capitalism, World Market Capitalism, its features and eventual form constitute the subject matter of this talk.
Prof. Naqvi graduated from Delhi University and pursued a Master’s degree at the Delhi School of Economics. In 1981, he moved to the USA, where he obtained another M.A. and his PhD at the Southern Methodist University, Texas. In the States, he worked on various country projects for distinguished organizations: South Africa for the World Bank, Vietnam for the World Wildlife Fund, and Kenya for the United Nations. Since 2007 he has been teaching at the American University in Bulgaria.

His main research interests are International Political Economy and Neoliberalism. A lecturer and professor at, among others, the University of Vienna, Yale University and New York University, Dr. Plehwe has shared his expertise on comparative political economy with an international range of scholars and students.

Dr. Plehwe currently coordinates the project “Transnational community and discourse coalitions: Comparative analysis of neoliberal networks of intellectuals and think tanks”.

| Australian Public Sector Integrity Measures in a Comparative Perspective
Compared with most other countries, Australia is usually seen as having sound public sector integrity. Nonetheless, instances of serious corruption continue to occur at all three levels of government: the national level; the state level; and the local level. At the same time, public sector integrity systems in Australia have remained reasonably static. After a wave of attention to developing integrity measures in the 1990s, especially at the state government level, enthusiasm for further integrity reforms has waned.
The current Australian public sector integrity measures are quite uneven when comparing the vertical and horizontal federal dimension. Examining the vertical dimension the national level integrity system is weak, while the integrity systems on a regional and local level are comparatively well developed. Different Australian states however, comparing them horizontally, have again taken quite different approaches to integrity measures.
After setting out these features of Australian public sector integrity measures in more detail, the presentation will explain these patterns by adopting a comparative perspective. In doing so, Dr. Smith draws on recent frameworks for practicing and interpreting public policy and public administration, including new public management and path dependency.
Dr Rodney Smith is Professor in the Department of Government and International Relations at the University of Sydney where he teaches Australian politics and political sociology. He has had a long term research interest in public sector integrity, most recently collaborating in a three-year Australian study on public sector whistleblowers, and on an international comparison of local integrity systems.
