Democracy 2025 Report No. 2. What lessons can we draw from international experience for bridging the trust divide?

Research output: Book/ReportReports

Abstract

There are now more authoritarian regimes than full democracies around the world. Democracy is on the retreat and Australia is not immune. Despite 25 years of economic growth, satisfaction in democracy has more than halved over the past decade dropping to 40.5 per cent in 2018. Levels of trust in Commonwealth government (31 per cent) and politicians (21 per cent) in Australia are at their lowest levels since survey data has been available. And there is a widespread belief that politicians don’t care about Australian citizens and their concerns for the future
