A night in the JOL: Democracy - is Queensland different?


In all of the public discourse surrounding the 2015 Queensland state election a spotlight has fallen on the ideal of democracy. The quest for good governance and the preservation of hard won democratic principles have been preoccupations for much of Queensland’s political history.

Explore Queensland’s very distinctive experience of the democratic process over several decades. Hear from political journalist, turned academic Dr Lorann Downer and prize-winning author and journalist Matt Condon as they engage in a stimulating conversation with Ian Townsend.    

This event is part of A night in the JOL, a monthly series of talks delving into different aspects of Queensland’s rich and diverse history.  

Date:  Tue 21 Jul 2015, 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm
Venue: SLQ Auditorium 2, level 2
