Government business relations are crucial in the current volatile political and economic climate.  Government and Business in Volatile Times explores the nature of government business interactions and their importance in responding to major global challenges.  One of these challenges has been how to deal with the aftermath of the global financial crisis and the ensuing volatility.  In this aftermath, a robust and accountable government business relationship is critical in ensuring sustainable economic governance throughout the  globe.  The book's related focus is on sustainable government and promoting and embedding sustainable decision making for both business and government.

The  book covers a considerable range of topics, countries and themes.  Despite the influence of globalisation, all contributing authors demonstrate that governments remain central players in both the  domestic and global economy.  One of governments' key roles in this volatile environment is to ensure that businesses act as their partners in establishing the conditions for a sustainable and productive global economy and society.

Elizabeth van Acker and Giorel Curran are  both senior lecturers in the School of Government and International Relations and members of the Centre for Governance and Public Policy at Griffith University, Queensland Australia.
