How is Government Accountable for What Happens in Armed Conflict Involving Australian Forces

Scott Ludlam & Dr Alison Broinowski

Did you know the Government can take Australia to war without a vote in Parliament?

Join former Greens Senator Scott Ludlam and Dr Alison Broinowski, Vice President of Australians for War Powers Reform, for a discussion of how Australia can ensure that Executive Government is accountable to the Parliament and the people, not only for the decision to go to war, but for what the armed forces do in the conduct of war.

In conversation with Allan Behm, director of the International & Security Affairs program at the Australia Institute.

Hosted by Ebony Bennett, as part of The Australia Institute’s 2021 webinar series. This video was recorded live on 24 March 2021.
