My podcast is not intended to promote any political party but rather facilitate a vibrant sharing of knowledge and encourage political discourse among women. Ozgirl Politics will officially launch episodes ...

This series of interviews with prominent politicians, public servants and academics seeks to bring the wisdom of hindsight to bear on the issues that challenge us today.
 
A critical but mostly overlooked aspect of both contemporary and historical political violence is the role diaspora communities have played in the planning, organization, financing, and execution of acts of terror. Members of the American Irish, Canadian Sikh, Swiss Tamil and Australian Croat diasporas—to provide just a sample—have all been powerful agents in the terrorist activities perpetrated in the name of their national and religious communities.

With mounting issues including low wage growth, the gig economy and underpayment, how can the government change policy direction during Covid? What sweeping changes are needed to improve innovation, immigration and…
 
Mr Morrison went to Tokyo and returned empty-handed. But the 24-hour trip was never about Japan, it was all about continuing to avoid scrutiny and land the Prime Minister into a two-week quarantine at the Lodge – just enough to avoid the final Question Time of the year. Very convenient. And, of course, two weeks with the official photographer, read…
 
Lukas Coch/AAP Chinese official Lijian Zhao’s tweeting an image depicting an Australian soldier holding a knife against a child’s throat and the subsequent angry exchanges is the latest incident in an exceptionally poor year for Australian-Chinese relations.

The 2020 US Election has brought in a new President (we think) and the key question will be how an incoming Democrats administration will affect political behaviour in Australia and whether the Morrison government feels the need to do anything at all on climate change. Or change its economic philosophy. Or even feel the need to be more truthful wit…

A high stinking pile of corruption is slowing being uncovered at the hearings…
