Policy Analysis

The Centre for Policy Futures is centrally concerned with complex policy challenges. We seek to improve understanding and accelerate well-targeted actions to address major policy issues. The Centre works closely with governments, international bodies, key not-for-profit organisations and stakeholders. With a proven track record of delivering research to large consortiums such as Cooperative Research Centres, ARC Linkage Grants, Advanced Queensland Industry Grants and others, the Centre’s key capabilities include:

  • Policy and regulatory analysis
  • SWOT (Strengths, Weaknesses, Opportunities and Threats) analysis of existing policies
  • Government support and co-design of policy
  • Analysis of policy impact on industry and communities
  • Stakeholder analysis
  • Futures thinking, strategic foresight and scenario development
  • Analysis of how existing policies and regulation may support and/or hinder the installation of innovations, technologies and new processes
  • Development of policy recommendations.
