One of the most important objectives of the Australian Centre of Excellence for Local Government (ACELG) is to support informed debate on key policy issues. We recognise that many councils and other local government organisations are not always able to undertake sufficient background research to underpin and develop sound, evidence-based policy.
ACELG’s research papers address this deficit. In addition to in-depth research papers which involve primary data collection and identify policy options, ACELG also supports the development and publication of scoping papers. These explore existing research on a topic to determine whether further work by ACELG or other organisations is warranted.
