Public Policy

...to help the great and continuing work of building a more equal, open, tolerant and independent Australia
— Gough Whitlam, 12 November 2010

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 government, education as a public good, full employment and Australia’s place 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.

E.G. WHITLAM RESEARCH FELLOWSHIP 2018

Applications now open for the E.G. Whitlam Research Fellowship 2018.

This research fellowship has been established for the purpose of promoting research in Australian politics and public policy guided by the values that oriented Gough Whitlam’s social democratic vision and that demonstrate the contemporary relevance of this vision for 21st century Australia.

The Whitlam Institute calls for applications for the E G Whitlam Research Fellowship from candidates with a demonstrable interest in any aspect, historic or contemporary, of the policy agenda of the Whitlam government and/or the Institute’s particular interest in contemporary social democracy.

The E G Whitlam Research Fellow would have the opportunity to work on a project that has clear strategic relevance to the Whitlam Institute’s broader public policy program that focuses on issues relevant to a contemporary social democracy, in line with Whitlam’s vision for the Institute to pursue ‘the great and continuing work of building a more equal, open, tolerant and independent Australia’.
