How to create an inclusive political system with Dr. Marija Taflaga
What does a genuinely inclusive political system really look like?
Joining the podcast to help us unpack this question is Dr. Marija Taflaga, a lecturer in the School of Politics and International Relations and co-host of the Democracy Sausage Podcast.
In this episode we ask Dr. Taflaga:
What is political participation and why is it important to social cohesion and our democracy?
What insights can we draw on from the 2022 Federal election and the rise of independents?
Should political leaders change the way they engage with cultural communities?
What impact do political campaigns and advertising have on social cohesion?
