Public Law & Policy Research Unit (PLPRU)

The Public Law & Policy Research Unit contributes an independent scholarly voice on issues of public law and policy vital to Australia’s future. It provides expert analysis on government law and policy initiatives and judicial decisions and contributes to public debate through formulating its own law reform proposals.

The Research Unit brings a range of theoretical, comparative, international and interdisciplinary perspectives to its research and scholarship. It has a particular focus on the functioning of Australia’s constitutional and political systems, government integrity and accountability, human rights and anti-discrimination law, environmental law, local government law and migration and refugee issues. The Research Unit facilitates and hosts seminars, workshops and conferences on these areas of law and policy, as well as coordinating submissions to government and parliamentary bodies on current issues. Our members are committed to active community engagement.
