The future of Grattan and policy in Australia

This week on the podcast, John Daley interviews our new CEO, Danielle Wood, on the future of Grattan, the importance of public trust in institutions, and her optimism in the potential for policy change in Australia.


What is Grattan Institute?

Grattan Institute contributes to public policy in Australia, a liberal democracy in a globalised economy.

We foster informed public debate on the key issues for Australia, through both private forums and public events, engaging key decision makers and the broader community.

Our work is rigorous, practical and above all, independent. We accept no ongoing government funding and undertake no commissioned work.
