The Brisbane Institute has a strong track record of producing rigorous and relevant research that benefits the lives of Queenslanders. 

The first forum to identify the emerging problems of unplanned population growth in south east Queensland, the Institute’s groundbreaking research report and exhibition, “The 200 Kilometre City: From Noosa to the Tweed” set the scene and prompted the call for the first south east Queensland regional plan

Since that time, the Institute has produced research focusing on the changing face of our cities and towns in south east Queensland, on the social fabric that binds our communities and the trends in development, environment and technology that threaten or tighten that fabric.

Amongst the Institute’s staff we have research expertise in organisational and social communication, social and environmental change management, social history, politics and cultural identity.

Our research committee is a cross-disciplinary, cross-institutional committee of eminent academics which advises the Institute on its annual research program.
