About our Research

The Centre for Social Impact's research sits on the bedrock of leading universities: UNSW, Swinburne University of Technology, The University of Western Australia and Flinders University.

We develop and bring together knowledge to understand current social challenges and opportunities to create a better world.

We work ethically and with rigour, across disciplines and with our research partners, ensuring people, community and organisations are central.

Our focus is on reducing social inequality and understanding and addressing key complex social problems. Within this focus, we strive to:

  • Identify and undertake flagship research programs that will help to fulfil our vision;
  • Identify, understand and address complex social problems using systems thinking and a range of lenses;
  • Examine processes to create a better society - particularly partnerships, collaboration and co-production, hybrid business models, funding models and leadership;
  • Determine whether and where progressive change is occurring - understanding what works, in what contexts and why.
