The Grattan Institute in Melbourne, Australia, gives nonpartisan advice and promotes public discussion and understanding on public policy areas including:

These areas were chosen on the basis that evidence-based research was believed to have an important role in improving public debate on these matters.[1] Grattan Institute also makes provision for experts in other fields to work under its umbrella.[1]

It is a think tank and was established in 2008, as a result of a bipartisan effort by former and retiring politicians from the Australian Labor and Australian Liberal parties. It is funded by Australian federal and state governments and corporations.[2]

It publishes reports[3] and holds events[4] for public discussion of these issues.
