The Institute's mission is to enhance our understanding of the causes of social change and to develop innovative and sustainable strategies to shape the trajectory of change, and to address its consequences.

Our approach emphasises the translation of critical inquiry and scholarly knowledge from a range of disciplinary perspectives into practical strategies to promote social adaptation, transformation and renewal.

The distinctiveness of our research is derived from our capacity to work with the Tasmanian community to develop and trial innovative strategies which both respond to local need, and address globally significant problems.
