The Jubilee Australia Research Centre engages in research and advocacy to promote economic justice for communities in the Asia-Pacific region and accountability for Australian corporations and government agencies operating there.
Australia exerts enormous influence over some of its neighbours in the Asia Pacific region. The Australian Government’s trade policy and aid program, and the practices of Australian companies, matter in the region. More often than it should, Australian influence is exerted in ways that result in considerable harm to marginalised communities.
Jubilee Australia is working to change this. We want Australia to be good neighbour in the region.
Our research and advocacy serve a public purpose: our investigations look into whose interests are served by the policies and decisions of Australian corporations and government agencies. If we find that the interests of communities in our region or the Australian public are not being served, we seek to draw these facts to the attention of politicians, the media, and our supporters.
