The West is beset by political turbulence. In the UK, US, Europe and Australia, citizens are voicing their discontent. They feel vulnerable and left out. Their jobs, sense of security, and their futures – they feel – are under threat. Is there a common thread to be found amidst all of this political disruption? Are we seeing a backlash against years of globalisation, free trade, and deregulation? A panel of experts at the ANU examine the scope for enhanced regulation in the public interest.
Recorded by ABC Radio National on 21 June 2017 at the School of Regulation and Global Governance (RegNet), ANU.
