The Commission’s independent research brings together international experts and thought leaders from Australia and around the globe to work on pressing problems and issues of public concern.
The Murdoch Commission aims to contribute to society in the Indo-Pacific region and beyond by undertaking three major research inquiries that deliver reports and recommendations to inform and influence public policy.
With the University’s commitment to quality research and teaching in public policy at both national and international levels, the Commission and its reports are exercises in applied public policy informed by rigorous scholarly research and analytical thinking. The three Commissions to date are:
- Inclusive Transitions on the Continent of Africa
- Food Security, trade and partnerships: Towards resilient regional food systems in Asia
- Western Australia and the evolving regional order: Challenges and opportunities
Inclusive Transitions on the Continent of Africa
