The Australia Insititute
Based in Canberra it conducts research on a broad range of economic social and environmental issues in order to inform public debate and bring greater accountability to the democratic process.
With new dilemmas confronting our society and our planet, a better balance is urgently needed.
Unprecedented levels of consumption co-exist with extreme poverty. Technology has connected humanity as never before, yet civic engagement is declining.
Environmental neglect continues despite heightened ecological awareness. If genuine progress is to be achieved, conscience, equity and concern for the future must be the guiding principles of our democracy.
Socially just, environmentally responsible and economically viable solutions are possible, but only if insightful questions are combined with excellent research.
The Institute is determined to push public debate beyond the simplistic question of whether markets or governments have all the answers to more important questions: When does government need to intervene in the market? When should it stand back? And when regulation is needed, what form should it take?
