The PM Glynn Institute was established by ACU in 2016 to provide the Catholic community with a standing capacity to analyse public policy issues of concern not only to the Catholic Church and its services, but to the wider Australian community.

“Considering the contemporary world in its increasing complexity also means understanding religion and the foundations of faith as part of the important and enduring features of the social and political landscape.” 
Dr Michael Casey 
Director, PM Glynn Institute 

The PM Glynn Institute is named after Patrick McMahon Glynn (1855–1931). One of the founders of the Commonwealth of Australia, he contributed to public life as a barrister, a writer, and parliamentarian who served as a minister in three Federal governments.

The institute's work {insert hyperlink to the Research Program page on the PM Glynn website} is shaped by the proposition that understanding the contemporary world also means considering religion and the foundations of faith as important and enduring features of the social and political landscape, both in Australia and globally.

Its role is to generate new approaches and new thinking on public policy issues, and to develop well-supported and practical proposals to address them.
