This material was researched and compiled by Tia Spanos, who worked as an intern at SEV in 2011 as part of her Bachelor of International Relations at La Trobe University.

We thank Tia for her research and effort in compiling information that relates to topics explored in the VCE Australian and Global Politics Study design.
