CPD Publications

CPD primarily publishes Occasional Papers by staff and fellows. Occasional papers are research on options for renewing Australian democracy, re-imagining public services and building a sustainable economy

Submission of Occasional Papers should be discussed in advance – this is to ensure that we have adequate time and resources to invest in the editing, peer review, production and promotion of the papers.
