What is Grattan Institute?

Grattan Institute contributes to public policy in Australia, a liberal democracy in a globalised economy.

We foster informed public debate on the key issues for Australia, through both private forums and public events, engaging key decision makers and the broader community.

Our work is rigorous, practical and above all, independent. We accept no ongoing government funding and undertake no commissioned work.
