PPE Perspectives: Political Fragmentation and Minor Party Voting


The minor party vote in Australia is rising. And it is rising faster in the regions than the cities. Politicians in the major parties are nervous and looking to win back voters, but lack of understanding of the causes of this shift risks bad policy and bad politics.

The PPE Society is excited to welcome Danielle Wood, Fellow at the Grattan Institute and National and Victorian Chair of the Women in Economics Network to discuss the economic, social and institutional explanations for the changes in voting patterns, and also to talk about her role in the Women in Economics Network and the gender imbalance in the economics profession.

When: 10th August 2017. 4pm
Where: La Trobe Bundoora Campus, Room HS1-101
