About this product
- DescriptionTopical and up-to-the-minute, Mirity Policy- Rethinking Governance when Parliament Matters explores the influence marginal parliamentarians have on public policy. Australia has had mirity governments in some form for almost 30 years, yet we have t come to terms with mirity as the new rm. Prominent policy cycle theory tends to overlook the subtle but significant influence of marginal parliamentarians on public policy. Mirity Policy argues that these influences t only have important implications for the outcomes of public policy, but also for the work of scholars, policy makers and advocates. Drawing on the experiences of two former policy advisers, as well as examples from the last two parliaments, Mirity Policy takes the discussion up to and beyond the introduction of the new Senate in July 2014 to observe the significant impact of this much more complex Upper House.
