The School of Public Policy is engaged in a wide-range of policy research that has impact within and outside the academy, influencing the ‘real world’ of policy and engaging the community. Our work, which intersects with all areas of the University Strategic Plan, creates knowledge that makes significant contributions to academic literature and also directly informs public debates and policy discussions on critical social, economic, political, environmental and health issues.

The School hosts the Centre for Public Policy Research (CPPR) research unit.
