Advocacy & research

As an independent voice on governance, Governance Institute of Australia is an active participant in the reform process.

We engage with the government on proposed legislative and regulatory reform and the bodies to which it refers inquiries, and also with the media, to ensure that our members' views are widely disseminated.

As part of Governance Institute's commitment to an ongoing improvement of governance practice across all sectors, we conducts research on issues relating to governance practices and trends, and issues arising in governance, risk and compliance.

Our research is intended both to provide definitive statistical information and trends on governance and risk management practice in Australia that can be used to support calls for legislative or regulatory reform, and also to report the views of members on important topical issues, so that Governance Institute can advocate on behalf of its members on the development of governance and risk management approaches.
