The importance of social research

The Cynefin Centre for Applied Complexity is expanding its global network. The Australian based ARIO Foundation has become an international partner.

For the past 5 years, the Cynefin Centre has developed radical new approaches for social engagement and understanding of complex issues and public policy. They have partnered with Universities, Governments and International Agencies in areas including refugees, aged care, health, international aid, domestic violence, COVID, social housing, community engagement and the justice system. The innovative approaches to engagement, sense-making and action provide a voice to those with lived experience, regardless of educational attainment or cultural background.

Dave Snowden and Australian advocates for social change explore critical social and policy issues facing Australia, and the role a research partnership of this nature can play.
