CPD Executive Director, guest panelist on The Drum.

In a lively debate, Miriam contends that Australians want a social democratic system with strong social services, with the push towards privatisation by the former Labor governments in NSW and QLD helping to hasten their departures from office.

Commenting on Australia’s Security Council bid, and the claim that such an appointment will enhance our ability to combat terrorism, Miriam argues for a more evidence-based approach to counter-terrorism strategy, one that evaluates the effectiveness of measures already in place.
