 Memory of the World Register - Nominated Documentary Heritage - Landmark Constitutional Documents of the Commonwealth of Australia - Australia
This is a collection of documents charting the evolution of Australia as one of the world’s most stable and long-lived democracies, an internationally viewed model of democratic experimentation, and the first country in the world to be created through the free vote of its people.
The film is the product and evidence of the fact that Australia was the first nation to be born in front of a movie camera, an event which took place on the very first day of the twentieth century — a new nation for a new century.
At the beginning of the twentieth century, when the Australian nation was established, Australia was viewed internationally as an exciting model of democratic experimentation for a new century.

 Laurie Brereton on "One Nation"
“The racist One Nation party appears to be thin on the ground in Kingsford-Smith, but no one should underestimate their threat to Australia’s social cohesion and cultural diversity”, the Federal Member for Kingsford-Smith, Laurie Brereton, said following the publication today of One Nation’s secret membership list by the Australia/Israel Review.
“There is no surprise that only a handful of One Nation members can be found in Kingsford-Smith, one of the most culturally diverse electorates in Australia with more than 36 per cent of residents speaking a language other than English in the home.
But if they choose to join a racist party such as One Nation, a party which threatens to inflict grave harm on Australia’s social cohesion and national interests, they shouldn’t complain when the political spotlight is turned on them.”

 Australian Foreign Policy
Australia has also moved far from its early framework within the British Empire and the Commonwealth, though Australia still cooperates with this grouping in areas of human rights and development.
This has lead to a strong concern, as repeatedly articulated by former Foreign Minister Gareth Evans, that Australia should be a 'good international citizen'.
This suggests that the essential elements or ingredients or constraints of foreign policy - whatever one wishes to call them - are also the factors which determine the 'power' of any nation to pursue its will.

 The Review - Way out in the West
In fact, Campbell’s Australia First party, which was recently de-registered, leading to his switch to One Nation, was in large part an attempt to fulfil Butler’s vision of a "grassroots movement" around Campbell.
In 1998, the party gained a Senate seat there easily, though a court later found that the One Nation candidate, Heather Hill, was ineligible because she was still a British citizen.
Moreover, while Hanson has ostensibly made up with Campbell and the new leadership of her party, the fact is she is losing control of the party to the West Australian branch, which is the new national party headquarters, and especially to allies of Mr Campbell.
