Work streams

The institute’s work is centred on three major work streams: Democracy in a Religious World; The End of Human Rights?; and Strengthening Hope, Renewing Confidence. The aim is to provide a clear-eyed, evidence-based survey of the political and sociological landscape, and the opportunities and challenges for the years ahead.

Strengthening Hope, Renewing Confidence

Strengthening Hope, Renewing Confidence

We need to reflect on the Australian story; to rediscover the sources of hope in our society, and the reasons for confidence in our ability to meet the challenges of the day.
