On Tuesday 23 August from 5.30pm – 8.00pm, the Centre for Indonesian Law, Islam & Society and the Electoral Regulation Research Network will co-host an evening seminar on "Political Corruption – Elections and Beyond: Perspectives from Indonesia and Australia."

Money in politics poses challenges to democracies across the world. An international study of elections held in 2015 has even reported that the most serious risks to free and fair elections stem from the failure to effectively deal with these challenges.

This seminar looks at the complex ways ‘money politics’ works to subvert democracy in two very different systems in two very different societies, and asks what can be done to prevent it.
