The Brotherhood’s Research and Policy Centre team includes people with international and national social policy and research experience. The team's disciplinary expertise is diverse, enabling us to bring multiple perspectives to our research and policy work.
The team also includes honorary research and policy associates, specialist social policy librarians, a research editor as well as business and administrative staff.
Together we strive to create knowledge and build evidence that seeds new approaches to social policy, programs and practice that help shape a better future people and communities experiencing poverty, inequity and social exclusion.
