Flinders University politics analysts are available for internationally focused expert commentary suitable for diverse global audiences.

Our experienced experts can wrap up the final days of the campaign, provide insights on election day itself, and are available for analysis of the results.

They’re able to explain all aspects of Australian politics including political processes, voter behaviour, and key policy areas such as the economy, climate change, health, taxation and international relations.

Professor Haydon Manning and Dr Rob Manwaring have capacity to provide live and pre-recorded content via phone and via skype. The Flinders media team has a broadcast quality camera and can assist with simsat interviews.
