    Sydney Ideas - Demarchy for better public policy

    Democracy depends on sound public opinion about the major issues of the day. Today these issues are of unprecedented complexity and difficulty, requiring serious deliberation and decision making, and the need to move beyond the factional struggles and attempts to win over key parcels of votes we see dominating politics today.

    GIR Colloquium Series | Understanding post-War Jewish refugee migration through the First Holocaust Songbook

    In the concentration camps and ghettos of Nazi-occupied Europe, Jews wrote songs to maintain a sense of dignity in the face of relentless dehumanisation, pass the time, and satirise the enemy. In this seminar, Dr Anna Boucher (Government & IR) and Dr Joseph Toltz (Sydney Conservatorium Of Music) will analyse and perform several of the songs from the First Holocaust Songbook. The seminar also draws upon original archival research in Yad Vashem, and interviews conducted with remaining song authors and their descendants in Israel to trace the post-World War Two emigration of European’s Holocaust survivors.
