The Fay Gale Centre for Research on Gender
The Fay Gale Centre at the University of Adelaide (FGC) is the outcome of the University's mission to recognise and promote existing areas of research excellence. The mandate of the FGC is to develop, promote and expand the existing substantive concentration of research excellence in the field of Gender within the University of Adelaide, and to build on the University's commitment to promote social justice, equality and diversity in the community and its own workplace.
The Indo-Pacific Governance Research Centre
The Indo-Pacific Governance Research Centre agenda encompasses critical issues of social and political governance, including institutional reform, which will relate to new forms of aid governance and participation, migration and inequalities, and environmental and human security. In adopting this approach we hope to generate a better understanding of more effective strategies for improving governance, which will hopefully, in the long run enhance public policy making in key areas such as climate change, poverty reduction, gender equality, social policy and human security.
