Grantee: Dr Nobuaki Suyama

Project Description

The will be a book on Australian party politics in Japanese for a Japanese audience.  The study of Australia’s party-based politics lies at the very core of Australian politics because almost every aspect of politics is done in a partisan manner.  Party partisanship is also a key element that both binds and divides Australian society.  To study Australian party politics is to portray a clearer picture of Australian national politics.  The parties ply their trade in the electorate for the people, the parties function for their survival by their internal workings, the parties perform their activities in parliament, and the governing parties do their jobs in government, whose apex of power is the Cabinet.
