The Sydney Institute
The Sydney Institute is a privately funded not-for-profit current affairs forum encouraging debate and discussion. The Institute is genuinely pluralist and a wide and diverse range of views are heard at its forums.
The Institute conducts about 60 policy forums a year on a wide range of issues – including economics, politics, international affairs, literature, history, film, social policy – along with a well attended annual dinner/lecture.
The Sydney Institute offers a range of membership options which include access to over 50 seminars a year – free to Associates – and subscription to The Sydney Papers Online and The Sydney Institute Review.

“The Sydney Institute is in the forefront of public discussions and public debate.”
The Sydney Institute – a no-nonsense, downtown venue for all credible points of view on Australian politics, history and culture. It leaves ideology at the door, and its podcasts guarantee a hearing the length and breadth of the country.
It’s not every day that I’m invited by such a prestigious organisation as The Sydney Institute to talk about Australians and their behaviour. So I sincerely thank the Institute for this irresistible opportunity.
