European Climate Diplomacy Day. International Climate Negotiations 101.

More than 190 countries will meet in Paris in December to reach an agreement on how to limit global temperature increase to below two degrees Celsius. But many people find the climate negotiations difficult to understand. This event aims to demystify the climate negotiations, and will include a chance to hear from different perspectives on climate issues – science, diplomacy and business. It is designed as a general introduction to the topics, for a non-specialist audience.

Understanding the Euro Crisis. The New Economic Governance of the Eurozone.

The EU and its system of economic governance has changed between 2010 and 2015. Since the beginning of the crisis a comprehensive revision and extension of the Stability and Growth Pact has been introduced. Moreover, on the international level the Euro-Plus Pact and the Fiscal Compact Treaty have been adopted with the aim of enhancing the coordination of economic policies among the member states. Apart from these initiatives, various mechanisms were introduced to provide conditional financing to the member states facing insolvency, including the European Stability Mechanism.

Centre for the Study of Australian Politics - Platform Papers

A central part of the Centre’s mission is to engage individuals in discussions pertaining to Australian politics and political science. In an effort to make this mission a reality we showcase here pieces written by current students and researchers in this field which raise issues for discussion.

Centre for the Study of Australian Politics - Professional News

The Centre will from time to time provide news on professional meetings and developments of interest to students of Australian politics. We include notices of the professional achievements of Australian political analysts who have recently passed away. The main professional association of political scientists in Australia is the Australian Political Studies Association (APSA)

Centre for the Study of Australian Politics - Classics

One important aim of the Centre is to stimulate fresh debate over the ‘big ideas’ in Australian politics. To this end, the Centre will try to republish lost or forgotten classics in the study of Australian politics: classics which continue to speak to us about the underlying nature of politics in Australia. One valuable source is the now-defunct ‘Political Theory Newsletter’ founded at the University of Sydney in the 1970s, and originally circulated through the Australian Political Studies Association (APSA).

Centre for the Study of Australian Politics - Reviews

The Centre will also publish occasional reviews of books, plays and other events relating to Australian politics. The Centre welcomes suggestions of publications and events worth reviewing. The aim here is to generate a ‘reviews’ page on the broader cultural impact of publications and events dealing with significant political ideas in Australia. Offers to contribute to these pages are welcome.
