The Centre for Policy Futures is a focal point for UQ researchers wanting to inform the debate today, to influence the policy of tomorrow.

Through robust and timely research and sustained policy engagement, the Centre for Policy Futures aims to enhance the University’s position as a key source of ideas and insights on the policy priorities that matter to Australia and the Pacific region.

Our strategic research applies tried and tested methods to help decision-makers navigate this complexity and design more effective initiatives. Our projects draw on the extensive disciplinary expertise that UQ has in areas such as – but not limited to – Ethics, Philosophy, and Decision Science. 

Our research applies these approaches to support policy development and decision making on a wide range of areas, most notably across our four research themes:

  • Science, technology and society
  • Security, development and foreign policy
  • Energy, environment and sustainability
  • Justice, rights and empowered communities
