Our Lab has 3 main areas of focus
1. We use survey experiments to understand public opinion toward some of society’s most pressing public policy issues such as fake news, political trust and artificial intelligence
2. We do research on the Future of Women at Work to identify the barriers to achieving gender equality and inclusivity and to develop evidence-based best practice for the workplace
3. We examine the attitudes of Australians in relation to political and institutional trust, political outlooks and how these relate to attitudes towards a range of policy and societal issues
We provide new evidence based on original data which helps governments and other public bodies develop creative solutions to pressing policy problems.
