Trust the people: the prospects for an Australian republic

Join Michael Cooney, Director of the Australian Republic Movement, and a panel to discuss the case for an Australian republic.

Trust the people is the first public debate presented in Democracy 2025’s Talking Democracy series. Regular events will be held throughout the year.

What are the key questions that need to be addressed? 
If we do want a republic what model do we want?
What lessons can be drawn from history and what are the barriers that need to be overcome to achieve an Australian republic?

Book now and be part of the conversation.
