Post-Crisis Civic Engagement

Posted on: Tue 11 Feb 2020

The beginning of this year has been tumultuous for Australians affected by the bushfires nationwide. And the governmental response has left citizens craving more control.

Anne Tiernan, Professor of Politics at Griffith Business School at Griffith University, joins Breakfast’s Tom Mann and Zoe Kounadis to discuss the impacts this engagement has and will have on society and governmental policy.
