Universitas Brawijaya (UB) confirmed Drs. Andy Fefta Wijaya, MDA., Ph.D. as a Professor in the field of Public Policy. He is the 14th active professor at the Faculty of Administration (FlA) and the 175th active professor at Universitas Brawijaya and the 329th professor out of all professors produced by Universitas Brawijaya. The inauguration was held on Sunday (13/08/2023), at Samantha Krida Building offline.

In his scientific oration, Prof. Andy Fefta Wijaya gave a presentation entitled “Public Policy in the Collaborative Governance Plus Multi Helix Model”

Public policy development in the collaborative governance plus multi helix (CGPMH) model is a framework that combines collaborative approaches and involves helix actors in various sectors in public policy.

The novelty of this model combines the concept of collaborative governance (binding principles, mutual agreement, and capacity to carry out joint actions) and the helix concept (government, civil society, private sector, academia, media and other helix) which so far the studies have been carried out individually.

“The main strength of Collaborative Governance Plus Multi Helix (CGPMH) is that each stakeholder brings unique knowledge, experience, and perspectives in public policy, while the weaknesses can be time-consuming and resource-intensive, and require extensive governance capabilities in involving participation of all stakeholders in order to reach a mutual agreement”. explained Prof. Andy.

This model also recognizes the importance of continuous learning, experimentation and evaluation in public policy, involving different stakeholders. This model allows for the exchange of knowledge, experience and learning so that quality public policies can continue to develop, improve and adapt to changing conditions and the needs of society.

CGPMH is able to enrich the public policy process starting from the formulation of decision making, implementation and evaluation with a broader, creative and innovative perspective.
