Phoenix? Pauline Hanson and Queensland politics

A case study on populism

15 Oct 2017
Description

There are complex reasons offered to explain the recent resurgence of Pauline Hanson’s One Nation to centre stage in Australian national politics. Hanson’s success in acquiring four Senate seats in the 2016 federal election provided her with an influential presence. Her resurgence has attracted the attention of academics, political commentators and public intellectuals within major think tanks, as well as politicians and strategists in all the political parties. The study here has the modest objective of reviewing some of these commentaries and analysing them in the specific context of Queensland state politics.
