Research interests / activities:

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. http://purl.library.usyd.edu.au/sup/animalwelfareinaus
