Celebrating success

A new book from Associate Professor Rob Manwaring will navigate social democracy, while other successes include a plum football media internship for a Flinders graduate and a Flinders expert shares her thoughts on an out-of-this-world treaty.

New book to navigate social democracy

Associate Professor Rob Manwaring

A new book from Associate Professor Rob Manwaring addresses the meaning of contemporary social democracy and how centre-left parties and factions are navigating a prevailing identity crisis.

The Politics of Social Democracy examines dilemmas of ideology, policy, electoral and organisational issues that are facing centre-left politicians. Featuring a series of case studies of social democratic and labour parties across Europe and the Anglosphere, the book has received rave reviews from policy experts around the world.

Associate Professor Manwaring says The Politics of Social Democracy will be of key interest to students, scholars and interested readers of labour and social democratic politics, centre-left political parties, trade unions, the future of the centre-left, and more broadly to those studying political parties, European and comparative politics.

Thoughts on out-of-this-world treaty

With a new age space race happening among SpaceX and other companies to see who can put more of satellites in low earth orbit, international space law expert Professor Melissa de Zwart has shared her thoughts on how congesting outer space will impede future space exploration, and why a peace treaty may be needed to stop an out-of-this-world war.

Professor de Zwart sat down with BBC Business Daily to discuss the space race in the 21st century, and she penned a piece for 360info about how the United Nations has re-energised its efforts to establish an international agreement on a peace treaty for outer space.
