Le Flaneur Politique
About This Show
Show Info: The concept of le flâneur politique becomes my "vehicle for the examination of the conditions of modernity". Dr Michael de Percy CMILT is a Senior Lecturer in Political Science in the School of Government and Policy and an Academic Fellow of IGPA at the University of Canberra. His research focuses on transport, logistics and communications policy and infrastructure. He adopts an historical institutionalist approach to understand how policy decisions made in the past influence the options available in the present. This is particularly important in network technologies such as transport and communications where legacy technologies tend to restrict optimal use of emerging technologies. Michael teaches political economy and leadership and he is a keen adopter of flexible pedagogical approaches in his teaching. He is a graduate of the Australian National University (PhD) and the Royal Military College Duntroon, and he is a Chartered Member (CMILT) of the Chartered Institute of Logistics and Transport.
