ART/CCCS Public Lecture: Integrity in Politics: The Power of Ideas

Thursday, 22 November 2012 - 5:30pm - 7:00pm

Widespread disenchantment suggests that public engagement with the political process is at its lowest ebb in decades. Lindsay Tanner has written extensively on the corrosive impact of entertainment media and political manipulation on our democratic process. He offers deep insights and thoughtful suggestions for reviving political engagement in Australia.

 

Lindsay Tanner is Special Advisor to Lazard Australia and Vice-Chancellor’s Fellow at Victoria University. From 1993 to 2010 he was Federal Labor MP for Melbourne, and from 2007 to 2010 he was Federal Minister for Finance and Deregulation.

 


The Accountability Roundtable is a non-partisan group of citizens with diverse backgrounds (academics, lawyers, politicians, journalists, authors) who are gravely concerned with the current erosion of honesty and integrity of our democratic parliamentary and governmental processes.
