Abstract

Policy makers appear to be recognising that the lack of representativeness of both Parliament and the civil service is a problem. A better mix of backgrounds may also help the public rebuild some trust in political institutions. Mathew Flinders, Felicity Matthews and Christina Eason discuss recent research looking reasons behind the continued traditional make-up of public appointments.
