The British Heritage of our Freedoms

     If we want to understand Australia’s success as a modern nation, as one of the world’s oldest continuous democracies, we must look back to the origins of our institutions. Civil society, liberal democracy, constitutional government, the rule of law and individual rights are all essential features of our free society.
     Institutions provide an important foundation for a society to attain its full potential. They are a legacy to this generation, passed down by those who have sought freedom of conscience, religion, speech, and the right to participate in politics and public debate.
     As part of the Foundations of Western Civilisation Program, the Institute of Public Affairs has produced a series of short films which explain the important role that British Institutions have played in shaping our nation.
