Insights for Action seminar series explores how researchers & practitioners within & beyond Oxford are using research insights for action

The Insights for Action seminar series explores how researchers and practitioners within and beyond Oxford are using research insights for action. Join us to hear conversations between researchers and practitioners who are working across disciplines, sectors, and media to understand and create more equitable and just social, economic, environmental and health systems.

In this seminar we will discuss Professor Akshay Mangla’s new book Making Bureaucracy Work: Norms, Education and Public Service Delivery in Rural India (November 2022), to understand what makes bureaucracy and the state work for the least advantaged. In conversation with Professor Daniel Armanios (Saïd Business School) and Khadijah Fancy (Cambridge Education), we will discuss insights from this book, in the context of broader questions of the role of the state in systems change, scaling interventions, and equity in education.

Speakers:

Professor Akshay Mangla is an Associate Professor in International Business at Saïd Business School, University of Oxford, and the author of Making Bureaucracy Work: Norms, Education and Public Service Delivery in Rural India.

Professor Daniel Armanios is the BT Professor of Major Programme Management at Saïd Business School, University of Oxford.

Khadijah Fancy is the Principal Education Adviser at Cambridge Education, and an education and gender specialist.
