Public, which is edited by Jane Dudman, builds on the Guardian's strengths in covering public services, in news and comment columns of the main paper and weekly in SocietyGuardian and on our award-winning website.

Public holds policy seminars, featuring speakers such as Sir Michael Barber, former head of the Prime Minister's delivery unit, and regular roundtables, where we bring together key players and debate current thinking.
