Australian social democracy is facing the electoral wilderness, its traditional institutional bases are in decline and there is increasing political fragmentation on the left of politics. Is there a way forward for Australian social democracy? Can social democracy overcome this current crisis and be renewed?

Panellists will discuss the meaning of social democracy and whether it continues to have a purpose.
