Join Parliamentary Education for the final 'A Little Night Sitting' for 2017 where we will present perspectives on two types of democracy: Westminster and Presidential. Which of these government systems has the best checks and balances? Which one better protects the rights of citizens? Which one keeps citizens better informed and engaged in public life?
Hear Professor Rodney Smith and Dr David Smith from the University of Sydney speak about the ways in which these comparative democracies represent citizens.
'A Little Night Sittings' are community events aimed at exploring the role and function of the Parliament and its history. Held several times each year, participants also have the opportunity to watch both houses of parliament in session and meet members where possible.
The final 'A little Night Sitting' for 2017 will be held on Wednesday 15 November from 5:00pm to 7:00pm. All are welcome to this free event. Bookings are essential and can be made on (02)9230 2047.
