The Centre for Independent Studies
The Centre for Independent Studies (CIS) is Australia’s
leading independent public policy institute. Its major
concern is with the principles and institutions underlying
a free and open society.
CIS believes in:
• individual liberty and choice, including freedoms of
association, religion, speech, and the right to property
• an economy based on free markets
• democratic government and the rule of law
• the importance of an autonomous and free civil society
CIS promotes its vision by fostering public debate about major
social, constitutional, and economic issues.
To remain independent of government influence on
its activities and direction, the Centre relies on untied
contributions from individuals, companies, and charitable
trusts, and income from the sale of its publications.
