The Social Policy Institute at the Crawford School of the ANU runs a series of workshops exploring major social policy concerns. The workshops are run on the Chatham House rule and involve invited academics, researchers, public servants and others from the policy community.

The workshops are jointly hosted by the Social Policy Institute at the Crawford School of Public Policy, the Tax and Transfer Policy Institute at the Crawford School (TTPI) and the ANU Centre for Social Research and Methods, with the support of the Australian Social Policy Association.

These workshops re-commenced in 2021. The first workshop was held on Friday 18 June in the Crawford School of Public Policy. The topic of the first workshop was “What happened to the Australian labour market in the Covid-19 pandemic in retrospect and prospect”.
