Our mission and vision

The Scanlon Foundation Research Institute undertakes research to help Australia advance as a welcoming, prosperous and cohesive nation, particularly where this relates to the transition of migrants into Australian society. 

What we do

The Institute conducts and analyses vital research into social cohesion, multiculturalism and related factors in Australia, and unites Australia’s leading thinkers on immigration to develop practical tools and insights for community organisations working across these sectors.

Through written publications, events, videos, podcasts and more, the Institute makes its research accessible and practical for the people who need it. In doing so, the Institute links thought to action to ensure informed debate drives the agenda, and empowers the critical thinking that will help drive Australia’s social cohesion forward.
