The Academy's 2019 Peter Karmel Forum will discuss the insights that can be gained from thinking about politics and policy through a values lens and how a political values perspective can enhance our understanding of political conflict and the policy process. 
Our lives are guided by sets of values that underpin our evaluations of good and bad, right and wrong, and what should or should not be.  These values have their origins in an individual’s upbringing, their religion, societal norms, and their lived experience. Values are deeply held and hard to shift and they guide not only individual behaviour but also inform judgments about the appropriate functioning of society. Recognising the role of values has important implications for politics and policy, highlighting the limitations of rational, value-free models of the policy process. 
Speakers: Professor Linda Botterill (University of Canberra), Professor Brian Head (University of Queensland), and Professor Julie Lee (University of Western Australia)
