Public Policy focus areas
The Whitlam Institute within Western Sydney University is a leading national centre and independent think-tank for the people. It works to ignite debate, strengthen discussion and enrich policy development in Australia. Our public program is guided by the Whitlam legacy around themes such as Australian Parliamentary Democracy, Education as a Public Good, and Australia in the World. We run fora and events throughout the year canvassing an even broader range of public policy ideas, including the Gough Whitlam Oration.
