Study with us
The Graduate Certificate of Crime, Risk and Resilience (CCRR) is designed for professionals who are engaged in governing criminal threats, or who are designing, implementing or enforcing regulatory systems within Australia, Asia or the Pacific, as well as those seeking to enter the field of professional regulation.
Earth observation data quality
As Australia's reliance on satellite Earth observation data grows, the consequence of inaccuracies (introduced through inadvertent errors or deliberate manipulation) in the data increases; particularly when used by governments and industry to inform investment, management and policy decisions. The risks of inaccuracies are replicated globally and will continue to increase as the Earth observation sector becomes more commercialised.
Alternate economic futures for remote Indigenous Australia
This research focuses on the theorisation of economic hybridity as an alternative to incorporation in market capitalism especially in remote Australia but also elsewhere where indigenous minorities are seeking to develop viable alternatives to late capitalism while living on their ancestral lands.
UNCAGED: governing in complexity
In an UNcertain and Complex world, we need to develop Adaptive Governance approaches and Emergent Design techniques. In UNCAGED, Professor Anthea Roberts and Professor Miranda Forsyth explore techniques for better understanding, navigating and managing complex systems. This forms part of a broader set of collaborative projects with Professor Katherine Daniell (School of Cybernetics) and Dr Ryan Young (Futures Hub) about Governing in Complexity.
Reforming the investment treaty system
This project brings together two sets of work about reforming the investment treaty system. As a web made up of more than 3000 treaties and multiple institutions, the investment treaty system provides an ideal case study for examining the way actors design and manage complex, contested and evolving systems.
The first is a series of blogs and articles written with Dr Taylor St John at the University of St Andrews, Scotland about the United Nations Commission on International Trade Law (UNCITRAL) investor state dispute settlement reform (ISDS) reform process.
