Mission and Mandate

The Centre for Future Work is a new initiative to amplify the progressive economic perspective in Australian debates over employment, labour markets, and incomes.

It will serve as a distinct and unique centre of excellence focusing on the broad range of issues facing working people, their families, and their communities: jobs, wages, sector development, globalisation, fair taxes, quality public services, income distribution, and more.

We will undertake credible, positive, progressive research on problems, challenges, and opportunities in the world of work in Australia.  And we will develop and propose timely and practical policy proposals that could help make the world of work better for working people.

The Centre for Future Work is a project of the Australia Institute, Australia’s leading progressive think tank.
