About Us

The Stretton Institute shapes policy debate by bringing current and rigorous research to policy issues.

We bring together researchers and experts from across the University of Adelaide to address key policy issues of relevance to government. 

Named after Hugh Stretton, the Institute has a strong social justice focus and drives a multi-disciplinary and multi-method research approach that:

  • Stimulate ideas and innovation; and
  • Evaluate programs and policies.

The Institute fosters and builds partnerships across the University as well as nationally and internationally.
