‘How Can We Do Democracy Better?’

Iain Walker is Executive Director of the newDemocracy Foundation (nDF) in Australia, a role he has held since 2011.

‘newDemocracy’ is an independent, non-partisan research and development organisation which aims to discover, develop, demonstrate, and promote complementary alternatives which will restore trust in public decision making.

In the past Iain has led over 20 trial projects at local government and state government level including projects for State Premiers on both sides of politics.
