This subject examines the institutional framework of Australian politics and the political process itself. It outlines the central features of the federal political system with special attention to both historical background and contemporary debates. In addition to the study of institutional frameworks (the Constitution, parliament, political parties and so on), the subject examines the dynamics of inclusion and exclusion that have shaped Australian politics and what it means for Australians to live together as members of a political community.
