The Monash Commission has been established to conduct a series of independent, in-depth inquiries into public policy matters that Monash University sees as critical to Australia’s future.
The context for the Commission’s inquiries is our vision for Australia as a fair, democratic, prosperous and enterprising nation, and as a good global citizen that promotes human progress at home and abroad.
The work of each inquiry will combine the expertise of Monash University scholars, eminent Australians, local and international enterprise leaders, leading thinkers on future societal challenges, and other groups with insights to share on the issues each inquiry seeks to address.
To inform its deliberations the Commission will promote open, evidence-based and robust debate. By engaging with a wide range of perspectives, each inquiry will seek to examine and rethink multifaceted, system-level problems. It will seek to design policy options that contribute in a substantive and sustainable way to system solutions and to Australia’s vision for its future.
The results of each Commission’s deliberations will be made public in the form of papers and a final report, along with any other publishable artefacts that arise from the Commission’s inquiry.
Professor Margaret Gardner AO, President and Vice-Chancellor of Monash University is the founder of the Monash Commission. Read more
