Political leadership

Friday, 28 February 2020, 5:30 for 6pm

Manning Clark House, 11 Tasmania Circle, Forrest

Speaker: Professor Frank Bongiorno, Head of the School of History, Australian National University.

In his Inside Story article, ‘The summer Scott Morrison’s leadership broke’ (3 January 2020), Frank writes: “I am unaware of any Australian prime minister who has managed to burn up political capital as quickly as Morrison has, and for so little return … Morrison’s political authority has fallen away more quickly than anyone could have imagined, even a fortnight ago … we have a prime minister whose inability to respond to a crisis has resulted in widespread national loathing, international ridicule and sharp questions about his capacity for national leadership.”

Frank will discuss patterns of political leadership in Australia and how they have changed over the years, the influence of the media and why our politicians are finding it harder to lead.
