Our Mission

The Australian Review of Public Affairs is a place to reflect upon and evaluate the design and redesign of Australia’s public policies and institutions, as well as Australia’s relations and responsibilities in the broader world community. To this end, the Australian Review of Public Affairs aims to stimulate the discussion of fresh, innovative approaches to a diverse range of issues.

Examples of these issues include economic policy, public sector governance, international relations, labour and workplace issues, business and finance, social policy, education, health, science and technology, urban and regional affairs, the environment, the arts, the media and law.

The Editors encourage submissions of concrete proposals for change—as well as evaluations of recent developments—in these and other relevant areas. At the same time, we welcome contributions that re-examine and challenge the deeper, more pervasive assumptions underpinning contemporary approaches to these issues. From time to time we will also solicit articles on specified themes.

In advancing its mission, the Australian Review of Public Affairs will take advantage of the possibilities presented by new media. In so doing, it will also build upon the recognised conventions of traditional print journals and magazines.

The Australian Review of Public Affairs is not captive to any defined ideology, beholden to any commercial interest, nor dominated by an entrenched opinion elite. While it is founded in the belief that there are no ‘sacred cows’, we insist this does not mean ‘anything goes’. We expect contributions to be constructive, based on evidence and reasoned argument, and to refrain from grandstanding or sloganeering. Journal articles are subject to a process of anonymous review.

The Australian Review of Public Affairs believes the discussion of matters of widespread significance should be accessible to all. We ask contributors to use clear, direct language, and to avoid jargon. The current contents of the Australian Review of Public Affairs are provided freely for individual and non-profit educational use.
