Australian Democracy – Senior Secondary Course. Now Free!

Welcome to ‘Australian Democracy’ a course for Senior Secondary Students.  This course is free to access without a purchase or login.

The  course covers both the ‘how’ and ‘why’ of Australian democracy. In this course, we trace the origins of our concepts of freedom, limited government, and the rule of law from ninth century Britain to federation. We look at the constitutional freedoms we do and don’t have and why. We then examine how political parties, parliaments, and the civil service interact to develop law and policy; and how practically citizens can influence government decisions.
