Launch of the ISFG with Tony Blair

The former UK Prime Minister joined ISFG Chair Alexander Downer to formally launch the School in 2019.


Governments of different creeds are struggling – and frequently failing – to meet the expectations of citizens, as evidenced by a lack of confidence in government institutions and events in recent political history. New thinking is needed to address changes in technology, media and public expectations. King’s International School for Government will very effectively address those issues as well as the traditional priorities of public sector management.
