Why become a member of the Institute of Public Affairs?

The Institute of Public Affairs was founded in 1943 as a non-profit educational research organisation. Our objectives are to further the individual, social, political, and economic freedom of the Australian people, and to maintain and enhance the Australian way of life.

We do not seek or receive funding from government. Our work is supported by our 9,000 members.
