Biographical details

Dr Stewart Jackson is a Lecturer in the Department of Government and International Relations, with a specialisation in Australian politics, at the University of Sydney. His broad interests cover the breadth of Green politics in Australia and the Asia Pacific, with a special interest in party development. These interests also extend to green political theory, particularly environmental feminism, and the intersection of social movements and parliamentary politics.

Prior to becoming an academic, Dr Jackson was involved in Green politics for 20 years as a party activist, including a period as National Convenor of the Australian Greens.

Research interests

Dr Jackson's most recent book focused on the role of party members in shaping the Australian Greens, and the potential impact of success on the party's original aims and principles. This focus has led to a continuing examination of the philosophical drivers of the Greens, and the impacts of existing state and parliamentary institutions on that growth.


Dr Jackson’s current research focuses on the physical and philosophical barriers to the development of the green parties in the Asia Pacific, requiring extended collaborations with parties across the region This research will also examine the potentials for green political movements and parties to emerge in the Asia Pacific, and has implications for the development of environmental parties across the geopolitical South.
