La Trobe University: Transforming Human Societies

Transforming Human Societies is one of the five research focus areas at La Trobe University, confronting some of the most pressing challenges facing human societies across our mobile, diverse and changing world—including human rights, migration, sustainable development, Indigenous issues, and rapid economic and political change.

Its work gets to the heart of the causes, impacts and outcomes of transformations in human societies, helping communities understand the mistakes and successes of the past and create a more just and sustainable future. It is committed to understanding national and global problems, with public intellectuals who have an enduring social conscience and whose knowledge and practice transform public policy and its delivery.
