Haig Patapan is Director of the Centre for Governance and Public Policy and Professor in the School of Government and International Relations. His research interests are in democratic theory and practice, political philosophy, political leadership and comparative constitutionalism. He has published in the foremost political theory journals (History of Political Thought, Review of Politics, and Political Theory), public policy journals (co-winner of the American Society for Public Administration Mosher Award in 2007), and law journals (Melbourne University Law Review; Federal Law Review; Sydney Law Review). His books include Judging Democracy (2000), an examination of judicial politics, jurisprudence and constitutionalism; Machiavelli in Love (2007), a theoretical enquiry into the origins of modern political thought; and a series of co-edited books exploring the changing nature of legitimacy, law and leadership, especially in Asia: Globalisation and Equality (2004); Westminster Legacies (2005); Dissident Democrats (2008); Political Legitimacy in Asia (2011).

Professor Patapan is an authority on democratic leadership, a theme he has explored in a recent co-authored book, The Democratic Leader (OUP, 2012) that investigates the unique strengths and limitations of leadership in democracies, as well as the co-edited collections Dispersed Democratic Leadership (OUP, 2009) and Good Democratic Leadership (OUP, 2014)
