Comparative Systems of Democratic Government

Living and studying in Australia presents many challenges for our students.

CMU-Australia makes special efforts to help students understand the unfamiliar culture, how people live and how to enjoy their new environment.

In particular, the way governments work often a bit of a mystery. Last Friday, Professor O’Loughlin delivered a talk for CMU-Australia students about the world’s two principal systems of representative government – the US Presidential and the UK Westminster systems.

Over 50 new international students enjoyed this entertaining and, at times, provocative talk. Here’s a link to professor O’Loughlin’s talk…make sure you activate the video clips on slides 19, 28 and 30.
