Since its formation in 1976, The Centre for Independent Studies has conducted wide ranging research into economics, social policy, law, government and foreign affairs.
The CIS is always looking forward, which means we aim to identify and research issues that will become important for Australia in the future.
Our overall research agenda is set by our Executive Director, in consultation with research staff, and the CIS Academic Advisory Council. As an independent think tank, we do not undertake any research on request.
