Deliberative Democracy in Australia by John Uhr

Book Description

Parliament is central to the democratic claims of our system of governance. This book evaluates the role and performance of this centrepiece of Australian government. It explores the institutional design of the parliament, and its principles and practices, presenting a compelling case for reform. Uhr discusses parliament's representative and legislative roles, and the issue of accountability. He looks at the place of representative assemblies in liberal political theory and assesses current institutional performance. He argues that republicanism can be seen as a form of deliberative democracy, examining ways in which such democracy might be made more effective and meaningful in Australia. Combining an authoritative knowledge of political theory with a familiarity with the inner-workings of the Australian parliament, the author makes an important contribution to debates in Australia and internationally.

Prudential Public Leadership by John Uhr Prudential Public Leadership, Hardback (June 2015)

How can we strengthen the capacity of governments and parties to manage arrivals and departures at the top?

This book introduces new analytical frameworks and presents the latest empirical evidence from comparative political research.
