Business and management
Our research in business and management focuses on ‘transforming lives through meaningful work’ and provides powerful arguments towards a paradigm shift by rethinking business’ traditional purpose. Popular research themes include workplace wellbeing, trust in teams, sustainable human resource management, ethical leadership, the role of gratitude, and mobilisation of organisational change.
Our staff members pursue Mission focused, values-based research that aims to positively impact Australia and the globe. We publish regularly in some of the world’s most highly regarded journals.
Recent examples include multiple articles in such outlets as:
With a particular focus on human rights endeavours and the private law of just societies, our research explores the interaction between domestic law and international human rights law. Our researchers in law examine issues at the intersection of human rights and religion, society and politics, Indigenous issues in Australia and overseas, transitional justice, and the human rights implications of globalisation and development, including intellectual property rights.
Information and communication technologies
Today's technology is not only pervasive, but intelligent and moving towards autonomy. Our researchers investigate how artificial intelligence, machine learning, blockchain, Internet of Things, smart devices, and cloud computing can dramatically transform the way we work and live. They also examine how the convergence of these technologies leads to challenges with interpersonal communication and human-machine interaction, and their impact on our society both sociologically and economically.
