Professor Ian McAllister and Sarah Cameron of the ANU School of Politics and International Relations will deliver a talk, ‘Trust, Parties and Leaders: Findings from the 1987-2016 Australian Election Study’, for the Senate Occasional Lecture Series on the 25th of August, 2017 at Parliament House.
Drawing upon Australian Election Study surveys fielded after every election over the past thirty years, this lecture will provide an analysis of voter opinion in three areas: 1) trust in politics and attitudes towards democracy; 2) assessments of the political parties; and 3) perceptions of the political leaders. The lecture will shed light on why we are witnessing dramatic declines in public satisfaction with democracy in Australia and will conclude with some proposals for political reform.
