    Research output: Non-textual formWeb publication/site

    Abstract

    In this paper, the authors address the ad hoc and politicised manner in which people come to be appointed to the boards of public bodies in Ireland. Some of the problems of this system are described. Alternative models for more transparent and independent public appointments are presented, along with arguments for more meritocracy, transparency anddiversity in public appointments. These provide a range of options for improving the current appointments process. The authors argue that the current ad hoc process needs to be replaced with clear rules - regardless of which model or mix of models is formally adopted.
