About the Centre for Future Work

The Centre for Future Work is a new initiative, housed within the Australia Institute, to conduct and publish progressive economic research on work, employment, and labour markets.

It will serve as a unique centre of excellence on the economic issues facing working people: including the future of jobs, wages and income distribution, skills and training, sector and industry policies, globalisation, the role of government, public services, and more.

The Centre will also develop timely and practical policy proposals to help make the world of work better for working people and their families.  The Centre is independent and non-partisan.

The Centre for Future Work is an initiative of The Australia Institute. The Australia Institute is independently funded by donations, mostly from philanthropic trusts and individuals, as well as grants and commissioned research from business, unions and NGOs. The Australia Institute does not accept donations or commissioned work from political parties. With no formal political or commercial ties, the Institute is in a position to maintain its independence while advancing a vision for a fair and progressive Australia. Donations to the Research Fund are tax deductible.
