Free Event: Parliament Unpacked – The Watchdogs

Free Event: Parliament Unpacked – The Watchdogs

About This Event

When asked, “What is the role of Parliament?’ most people would respond that it is to make laws and represent the people of NSW.  

That would be correct – but did you know that an important role of the legislature is also to hold Government to account?  

In the second ‘Parliament Unpacked’ program for 2024 we will examine the role of public institutions like the parliament as “watchdogs” for our democracy.  

What Can You Expect? 

We’ll be asking: 

Join our panel of experts: the Chair of Parliamentary Committee on the Independent Commission Against Corruption; the NSW Ombudsman; the Auditor-General of New South Wales and the Deputy Leader of the NSW Opposition, as they discuss how the organisations they represent play the critical role of watchdogs in our democratic system of government.  

WHEN: Tuesday 7 May from 5.30 pm to 6.30 pm 

WHERE: Jubilee Room, NSW Parliament House, 6 Macquarie Street, Sydney, and livestreamed online. 

Parliament Unpacked: The Watchdogs is organised and delivered by the Parliament of NSW’s Communications, Engagement and Education branch, together with the Australasian Study of Parliament Group.

This free event has been put together to provide a behind the scenes look at the workings of the Parliament.
