Abstract

Australia’s political system is, broadly speaking, a well-functioning democracy that delivers a decent standard of living to most members of the community. Despite one of the largest immigration programs in the world, society has generally exhibited a high level of social cohesion and inclusion, with reasonable levels of equality of opportunity and an open labor market. In consequence, successive opinion polls have shown the Australian public to have some of the highest levels of democratic satisfaction and national pride among the established democracies.
