Paul's research examines the nexus between public policy, public administration and information technologies. This domain can be understood as the policy performance. Paul's work is conceptually informed by Foucault's idea of governmentality, and social studies of technology. He is currently investigating this domain in several research projects. One examines the financing and management of care and support to adults with acquired disabilities. Another investigates the use of performance measurment as a technology of government in Australia's schools, universities, primary medicine and social security.

Abstract: This book provides rare insights into the nature of contemporary, technologically-facilitated government. Its multidisciplinary approach demonstrates that information technology is more than a tool for politicians and policy-makers. E-government has reconfigured public administration, policy, power and citizenship.
