Professor James Allan’s insider’s peek at the current political crisis brewing in Australia.
On May 24, 2018 the Danube Institute Presents
 
Australian Constitutional Law Scholar and political commentator Professor James Allan’s insider’s peek at the current political crisis brewing in Australia. Some of the causes of the crisis include:
 
  • a PM distrusted by much of his own party
  • a series of constitutional difficulties as MPs discover that because they have dual citizenship they must resign and face special elections
  • an opposition distrusted by corporate Australia
  • an aggressive Green Party that resists the use of AU’s enormous fossil fuel reserves
  • a growing concern with China’s rising political influence
 
Professor James Allan holds the oldest named chair at The University of Queensland. Before arriving in Australia in February of 2005 he spent 11 years teaching law in New Zealand at the University of Otago and before that lectured law in Hong Kong. Professor Allan is a native born Canadian who practiced law in a large Toronto law firm and at the Bar in London before shifting to teaching law. He has had sabbaticals at the Cornell Law School, at the Dalhousie Law School in Canada as the Bertha Wilson Visiting Professor in Human Rights, and at the University of San Diego School of Law.
Professor Allan has published widely in the areas of legal philosophy and constitutional law, including in all the top English language legal philosophy journals in the US, the UK, Canada and Australia, much the same being true of constitutional law journals as well. Professor Allan also has a sideline interest in bills of rights; he is opposed to them. Indeed he is delighted to have moved to a country without a national bill of rights. He has been actively involved in the efforts trying to stop one from being enacted in Australia. Professor Allan's latest book is Democracy in Decline (published mid-2014). Professor Allan also writes widely for newspapers and weeklies, including The Australian, The Spectator Australia and Quadrant, and since arriving here in Australia he has given or participated in more than 80 lectures, debates and talks.
