The Chifley Research Centre is the official think tank of the Australian Labor Party dedicated to championing a Labor culture of ideas.
Named in honour of Labor’s inspirational Prime Minister, Ben Chifley, we seek to advance progressive thinking and strengthen the principles of democracy, equality and opportunity.
The Chifley Research Centre undertakes public policy research to develop new social democratic policy prescriptions for Australia. Our conferences and events bring together opinion leaders to discuss ideas and public policy issues affecting Australia and the world.
We acknowledge the traditional custodians of the land on which our offices stand and we pay our respects to Elders past, present and emerging. We acknowledge the sorrow of the Stolen Generations and the impacts of colonisation on Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples. We also recognise the resilience, strength and pride of the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities.
