Our Mission

Connecting to Parliament seeks to involve more Australians in the democratic process, by linking a representative sample of constituents with their elected official in productive town hall conversations about the issues that are subject to parliamentary debate in Australia.

Emerging from and rooted in rigorous academic research, Connecting to Parliament seeks to expand knowledge about the potential benefits and uses of deliberative democracy.
