The future of Labor: a webcast conversation

What is Labor's future? Join La Trobe University's Professor of Politics Robert Manne as he discusses the future of the Labor Party in Australia with political commentator Mark Latham, a former leader of the federal Labor party.

The Australian Labor Party is said to be in trouble. Opinion polls show the federal Labor Party first preference polling at near-historic lows. The New South Wales branch is facing electoral catastrophe.

So, what has gone wrong?

On Tuesday March 29, the Ideas & Society Program at La Trobe University is holding a webcast conversation between the former leader of the federal Labor Party, Mark Latham and Robert Manne, Professor of Politics at La Trobe University on “What is Labor’s Future?”

Mark Latham is one of the shrewdest and most independent political thinkers in the country — the author of Civilising Global Capital: New Thinking about Australian Labor; From the Suburbs: Building a Nation from our Neighbourhoods and The Latham Diaries.

Robert Manne is one of the country’s best known political commentators — the author or editor of Dear Mr Rudd: Ideas for a Better Australia; The Howard Years; and Left, Right, Left: Political Essays, 1977-2005.

The conversation will be held on Tuesday 29 March between 12.30 and 2.00PM.  You can only join the conversation via webcast.
