The Law School’s Public Law and Policy Research Unit (PLPRU) hosted a very successful workshop on the Australian Constitution and National Identity during November 2019. The workshop brought together academics from around Australia, in the fields of law, politics, and history, including PLPRU members Peter Burdon, Joe McIntyre (from UniSA), Lorne Neudorf, Anna Olijnyk, Alex Reilly, and Tiziana Torressi. Interstate guests were Elisa Arcioni (University of Sydney), Megan Davis (UNSW), Robyn Hollander (Griffith University), Benjamin T Jones (Central Queensland University), Mark McKenna (University of Sydney), Kim Rubenstein (ANU), Sarah Sorial (Macquarie University) and Eddie Synot (UNSW).The day consisted of wide-ranging discussions about the Australian Constitution’s role in shaping and reflecting national identity. Major themes included the place of First Nations in the Constitution; the way the Constitution determines who is included and excluded from the Australian people; and visions of an Australian republic. Participants are now working towards publishing these papers as a book.
