The Australia Institute is one of the country’s most influential public policy think-tanks. Based in Canberra, we conduct high impact research that combines rigorous fact-driven material with cutting-edge communication strategies.

When we talk about ‘research that matters’ we are talking about making real, tangible changes that would not have happened if we were not there to make them happen.
