Sydney Policy Lab

The University of Sydney

Addressing complex local and global policy challenges.

We aim to contribute to the development of a society that works for everyone, by bringing people together to spark new ideas, reframe issues and transform the policy options on the table.

We offer a place where people come together to identify what they share in common and work out how to build change for the future.

In short, the Sydney Policy Lab is a hub for individuals who share a common commitment to the public good and are working towards this.

Together, we’re responding to some of the hardest questions of our age – in areas of equality, belonging and power.

Our non-partisan space brings different worlds together, inspiring open collaboration and building real change for the future.

In a turbulent world, where our communities are being eroded by spiralling inequality and a creeping sense of insecurity, the Sydney Policy Lab is committed to helping anyone who wants to lead social change for the public good.
