Social security fraud, accountability and taming wicked problems
Background to the study
- Originally briefed from a heuristic from Legal Aid re types of cases prosecuted and 'cost'.
- Soon apparent that a typical cost benefit analysis was not only a flawed approach but inherently misleading.
- Mindful that arguing over 'numbers' was not going to approach the problem from a social accountability perspective.
- Framed as a Wicked Problem within the Whole-of-Government literature.
