The Power of One Voice- Power, Powerlessness, and Australian Democracy

Research output: Book/ReportCommissioned report

Abstract

This is the first output from an exciting new partnership between the Institute for Governance and the Museum of Australian Democracy (MOAD) at Old Parliament House. The initial purpose of the partnership was to develop a survey tool to provide data to underpin the museum’s new exhibition ‘The Power of One: Does Your Voice Count’ but it has subsequently broadened out to a more ambitious agenda to: 1. produce high quality research on the changing nature of democratic engagement in Australia and internationally; 2. heighten public awareness of problems in Australian democracy; 3. provide a repository of national and international better practice in terms of democratic innovations; 4. design and analyse unique data sets on the qualities of Australian democracy and (where appropriate) processes of democratisation internationally; 5. co-design education programmes that explore the qualities of Australian democracy and (where appropriate) processes of democratisation internationally; 6. make full use of a unique space for disseminating our research findings and debating future democratic governance; and, 7. co-author innovative ways of visualising and imagining Australian democracy. This particular report provides a snapshot of the key findings of a survey conducted in February 2014 in which Ipsos asked a representative sample of Australians to consider various issues regarding Australian democracy and their role in making it work.
