The Crawford School of Public Policy presents a talk on a brief history of random recruitment, theoretical principles that could guide its application and a discussion of a number of possible future applications.

Not only can this method of selection be used to generate greater citizen participation in modern politics, but the nature of the selection process itself can bring certain benefits to public life. Because it inhibits the ability of political actors to exercise the power of appointment it could be especially valuable in areas of government where greater impartiality, greater accountability or more transparency is needed.

Date: Tuesday 20 September 2016
Time: 12.30pm–1.30pm
Venue: Seminar Room 8, Level 2, JG Crawford Building 132, Lennox Crossing, ANU
Speaker: Dr Oliver Dowlen, University of London, UK.
