If you have a question about this talk, please contact David Titterington.

Over the last decade there has been much speculation that AGN activity is intimately linked to the evolution of the host galaxies. However, uncertainties remain about how, when and where AGN are triggered as galaxies evolve, and the true level of impact that the associated outflows have on the star formation in the host galaxies. I will present new results on the triggering of powerful quasar-like AGN , based Gemini, Spitzer and Herschel observations of the southern 2Jy sample of powerful radio sources. I will also discuss the importance of the ionized, neutral and molecular outflows driven by AGN , presenting case studies of some nearby objects.
