Released Dec 2013: Climate Change in a New Democratic Age: Why we need more, not less, democratic participation was authored by Dr Randal G Stewart and is the latest in our Perspectives series. This paper examines the role of three key groups in the climate change debate - scientists, economists, and the bureaucracy - as the lens through which to consider the capacity of democratic decision-making processes to establish effective climate change policy.
The survey was commissioned by the Whitlam Institute and conducted by Newspoll.
