The year 2002 was a turbulent one for Australian politics. The war on terrorism dominated the news. The Bali bombing left a nation grieving and brought home the realisation that terror attacks do not always happen in faraway places. Debate continued on how Australia should protect its borders and how it should deal with refugees seeking asylum within Australia. While war dominated the international stage, the normal push and shove of domestic politics continued. Cartoons 2002, the catalogue of the annual political humour competition, reviews these and other issues through the works of Australia's leading political satirists.
