This introduction presents an overview of the key concepts discussed in the subsequent chapters of this book. The book attempts to understand how two sister centre-left parties, the British Labour Party and the Australian Labor Party (ALP), have sought to adapt to the modern era and effect changes. It examines aspects of the democratic renewal agenda and its prospects for the revitalisation of labour politics. The book identifies a range of drivers for Labour's desire to experiment and find new forms of citizen engagement. It also examines how far the New Social Democracy (NSD) has influenced Labour governments in Britain and Australia. The book establishes Labour's interest in democratic renewal, specifically, the role of political participation and civic engagement in the wider context of democratic theory.
