Politics is about power. About who gets what, when and how.
The way politics is structured - the rules of the political game - is a major determinant both of how the game is played and the outcomes. Institutions are the rules that structure political life - whether in a particular organisation (such as a university), a country or among countries.
My research and teaching have been about understanding political institutions across the Asia-Pacific region. I will be talking about some of the key insights that have come from an understanding of how institutions shape political life and how this plays out in countries ranging from Indonesia to Japan, China to Singapore, Vietnam to Malaysia and Australia to the United States. It will be an account featuring beaches, protests, parliaments, presidents, parties, soldiers and financial crises, as well as what this all means for RMIT.
