The Centre for Applied Social Research (CASR) undertakes research and promotes public debate on key areas of social change and social policy.

The Centre works closely with a range of community organizations, government departments, local governments and the union movement.

CASR is committed to the idea that effective and equitable policy choices need to be founded on insightful public debate. Such debate requires historically and theoretically informed applied research. CASR is based in the School of Global, Urban and Social Studies at RMIT University.
