Walter Lepore

Walter Lepore is a PhD candidate at the School of Public Administration at the University of Victoria (Canada). He is currently working on his doctoral dissertation that is focused on the attention processes of public sector organizations on wicked policy problems. His research involves a multidisciplinary approach to complex, uncertain, dynamic and highly conflictive policy issues -e.g., ecological sustainability, indigenous disadvantage, habitat protection- that require a ‘whole-of-government’ approach, collaborative efforts, public deliberation processes and community-based solutions to be effectively addressed. Walter uses a variety of research methods and data analysis tools, such as statistical analysis, interviews and content analysis, qualitative systematic reviews, semantic network analysis, trends in Internet activity and utilization, organizational process studies and narrative analysis. Walter just joined the UNESCO Chair in Community-Based Research and Social Responsibility in Higher Education. He is coordinating a project aimed at increasing access to high quality training in Community-Based Research within higher education institutions and civil society organizations in the Global South.
