    How Sam Kerr sparked a national conversation on racism

    • Joel Hodge
    • 27 March 2024

    Sam Kerr’s alleged comment to a UK police officer has divided opinion as to whether it constitutes racism. The central question involves whether a structural understanding of racism should supersede a universal, neutral sense of racism of the kind that is enshrined in law.

    • Michael Furtado
    • 20 March 2024

    By day, Gaza is news and images in the media. During the day, we nod as we see the plausibility of all the arguments. But sometimes at night, we may hear again the voice of lamentation, weeping and great mourning.

    • John Chesterman and Ilan Wiesel
    • 01 March 2024

    The key to combatting increasing levels of loneliness and social isolation will likely start in the way we think about cities, public spaces and social care to enable meaningful connections between people, and help to guard against harms caused by habitual loneliness.

It is a measuring stick by which both Parliamentary behaviour and the treatment of Indigenous Australians can be judged.
