Rooting Democracy: Growing the Society We Want
Parliament alone cannot protect the public interest while safeguarding individual rights. For a flourishing democracy with properly visible accountable government, we must protect and develop those less visible - and thus more vulnerable - institutions, such as public prosecutors, human rights commissions, the independence of the judiciary and public service, FOI, ombudsmen and other watchdogs which provide the checks and balances vital to democracy. This analysis makes useful reading for civics education, for those who value participatory democracy and a truly civil society.
