The Australasian Study of Parliament Group (ASPG) was established in 1978 to encourage and stimulate research, writing, teaching and discussion about parliamentary institutions, particularly those in Australasia and the South Pacific. The ASPG has chapters in all states and territories of Australia and in New Zealand.
Membership consists of parliamentarians, parliamentary officers, academics, teachers, journalists, students and other interested individuals.
The Australasian Parliamentary Review is the ASPG's official journal and is published twice a year. The National President of the ASPG is Colleen Lewis, Adjunct Professor with the National Centre for Australian Studies.
Membership of the Western Australian chapter costs $60 per year and entitles you to —
- two issues per year of the Australasian Parliamentary Review;
- attendance at WA chapter dinner seminars or other functions free of charge; and
- discounted registration fee at ASPG annual conferences.
Full-time students may join as associate members for an annual fee of $30. While associate members will be exempt from function door fees, they will not receive copies of the Australasian Parliamentary Review.
