"Guerrilla government” is Rosemary O'Leary's term for the actions of career public servants who work against the wishes—either implicitly or explicitly communicated—of their superiors. This form of dissent is usually carried out by those who are dissatisfied with the actions of public organisations, programmes, or people, but typically, for strategic reasons, choose not to go public with their concerns in whole or in part. Rather than acting openly, guerrillas often move clandestinely behind the scenes, salmon swimming against the current of power. Guerrillas run the spectrum from anti-establishment liberals to fundamentalist conservatives, from constructive contributors to deviant destroyers.
Rosemary O'Leary will talk about her thesis that guerrilla government is about the power of career bureaucrats; the tensions between career bureaucrats and political appointees; organisation culture; and what it means to act responsibly, ethically, and with integrity as a public servant.

Professor Rosemary O'Leary is the Edwin O. Stene Distinguished Professor of Public Administration at the University of Kansas, and visiting Ian Axford Fellow.
