The Swinburne Institute for Social Research

The Swinburne Institute for Social Research is one of the largest social science and humanities research centres in Australia. We produce relevant and outstanding research across a range of critical issues, including the sustainability of our cities, the impact of digital technologies, and the movement of people across borders. Our researchers work with industry, government and community partners to extend the evidence base, identify solutions to complex problems and contribute to public debate.
