OUR ACHIEVEMENTS

20 YEARS OF ACTION

Australia21 grew from a challenge thrown to Emeritus Professor Bob Douglas, Jane Dixon and Richard Eckersley in 2000 by the founder of the Canadian Institute for Advanced Research (CIFAR), Fraser Mustard. 

 

20 years later we continue to foster fresh thinking about public policy and provide evidence-based strategies for addressing ‘wicked’ problems that defy simple solution. We work tirelessly to help shape the best possible future for Australia.

50+ PUBLICATIONS

In 20 years we have published more than 50 reports on our research across topics that include the environment, equality, Australian democracy, health, drug laws, mindfulness, refugees, migration, public violence and the future of work to name just a few 

2600 HRS PRO BONO WORK

Each year our volunteers complete more than 2,600 hours of pro-bono work in support of reaching our goals. Our volunteers come from all parts of Australia and include academics, students and industry experts. 

 

Volunteers work on research projects and the governance of our organisation and are people who deeply believe that the best way to ensure a secure, vibrant and sustainable future for all starts with evidence based research that leads to policy decisions that benefit all Australians.

OUR LATEST THOUGHTS

Australia21 is an independent, not for profit think tank. We promote fair, sustainable and inclusive public policy through evidence-based research.
