Institute for Governance and Policy Analysis
Institute for Governance and Policy Analysis (IGPA) was established at the University of Canberra. This harnessed the research strengths of the National Centre for Social and Economic Modelling (NATSEM) and the ANZSOG Institute for Governance (ANZSIG) along with those of the Centre for Deliberative Democracy and Global Governance (CDDGG) which re-located to UC from the ANU. The aim was to create and sustain an international class research institution for the study and practice of governance and public policy. In 2017 the 50/50 by 2030 Foundation – a high profile gender equality initiative – was established at UC attached to IGPA, and in September 2018 the Democracy 2025 project was created in IGPA as a partnership between UC and the Museum of Australian Democracy (MoAD).
