Here’s a chance for you to be part of a provocative and challenging group which is interested in Parliament, democratic systems the world over and the modern challenges they face.  If you want to learn from interesting seminars and take part in free and frank discussions join the ASPG (Australasian Study of Parliament Group). We’re a politically neutral group made up of MPs; parliamentary staff; academics; writers; media; students and anyone else who is interested in the role of parliament.

What does the ASPG involve?

  • Regular seminars for members and their guests at Parliament on topical issues.
  • Opportunities to network pre-seminar with nibbles and a cash-bar.
  • An annual conference rotating between different states in Australia and New Zealand.
  • Publishes the Australasian Parliamentary Review e-journal twice a year.
  • Attracts expert speakers
  • Wants to encourage people to think and write about parliamentary institutions.
