Senior Lecturer

University of Sydney


Peter Chen teaches media politics, public policy and Australian politics at the undergraduate and postgraduate levels. His research interests focus on the relationship between media and politics: with a special interest in new media’s impacts on electoral politics, media regulation, social movements, and the politics of animal protection.

Peter has been working on a policy “domain” study of the practices and process of policy making in Australia associated with animal protection and welfare since 2012.  This research, involving a mixed methods approach to examining the policy making space and relations involving a wide array of actors, was published by Sydney University Press as Animal Welfare in Australia: Politics and Policy in October 2016.
