|Abstract:||The National Union of Students was established in 1987 and began function in its full capacity the following year after a long and contested formation process that involved as many failures as successes. Both at the time and during periods of political tension since the structure and organisation of the union have come under intense criticism for entrenching the factional power of the Labor students. This thesis closely examines the processes by which the NUS was formed and places the internal political contests that shaped the early union within a broader structural framework.|
