About Us

The Legislative Leadership and Governance Group (LLGG) is a registered not for profit, member-based organisation focussed on parliamentary strengthening which is hosted by the Alfred Deakin Research Institute at Deakin University, Geelong. It was established in November 2011 as the successor body to La Trobe University’s (LTU) Public Sector Governance and Accountability Research Centre (PSGARC) which had been founded in 2005 to pursue legislative strengthening and capacity building.

In 2010 an internal LTU review determined that, in line with the University’s new Strategic Plan, PSGARC should change its focus to academic research rather than the delivery of training and capacity building for legislatures. Following discussions with Deakin University, The co-founders of PSGARC, Adjunct Professor Peter Loney and Dr William Stent, transferred to Deakin to continue the original concept.

The primary purpose of LLGG is to provide quality training for elected representatives and the public sector generally, in order to strengthen the role of parliaments and legislatures and the understanding of accountability and good governance principles and practices.

LLGG is a unique organization in the parliamentary and legislative strengthening field. Its key aims are:

  • To promote teaching and practice that supports the role of parliaments and legislature in contributing to accountability, openness and transparency of government.
  • To explore issues of accountability and governance within the public sector generally.
  • To establish links with academics, practitioners, politicians and institutions and enhance the networks which seek to promote the role of parliaments and legislatures and the understanding of accountability and good governance principles and practices.
  • To arrange seminars and courses on any or all aspects of public sector accountability and governance
  • To provide fee-for-service consultancy, advisory services and training courses in areas consistent with the main purpose of the Association.
  • To do all such other acts, including the publication in print or electronic format, of books, memoranda, journals, magazines, circulars, reports and any documents or databases as the Association may consider expedient to promote the interests of members.
