A distinguished American politics expert has delivered a public lecture at Charles Darwin University’s Casuarina campus as part of Fulbright Northern Territory Day.

Fulbright Distinguished Chair in American Political Science Professor Thad Kousser discussed how divisions between major political parties in the United States might impact on domestic policy-making.

In the talk, entitled “American Political Polarisation and the Presidential Race of 2016”, Professor Kousser also compared such trends in American politics with those in Australia.

Other events on Fulbright Northern Territory Day included a Fulbright Scholarship information session for interested students and researchers.

Flinders University is sponsoring Professor Kousser as he tours Australian universities as part of the Fulbright Lecture Series. He comes from the Department of Political Science at the University of California San Diego, USA.
