In this public seminar, we have Professor Evelyne de Leeuw from the Centre for Health Equity Training Research and Evaluation (University of New South Wales) giving a presentation on her research into Healthy Public Policy and Health in All Policy development at the local government levels across Europe and Victoria (Australia). They deployed an eclectic but rigorously applied set of theories from political and social science. The research used the Healthy Cities (Europe) and Municipal Health Planning (Victoria) as case material to elicit conditions for successful joined-up government health policy development. Over time they found that he hybridisation of Multiple Streams, policy network and network management theories and framing approaches yields good insights into the nature of the policy process and how health may be part of it.
Evelyne de Leeuw joined CHETRE in September, 2015, and is based at the interface of health research, policy and practice at UNSW Australia, the South Western Sydney Local Health District/Population Health, and the Ingham Institute.
Evelyne currently holds appointments as Honorary Professor, Deakin University and La Trobe University; Visiting Professor, Université de Montréal; and Visiting Professor, Maastricht University (The Netherlands). She is WHO European Research Director for Healthy Cities. Evelyne is also the Editor-in-Chief of the international peer-reviewed journal Health Promotion International and considered a leading global health promotion scholar, as evidenced by her appointments to high-level research panels (e.g., the Academy of Finland, and Science Ministries in Japan and Germany).
