About Jubilee Australia Research Centre

Jubilee is a not-for-profit research centre based in Surry Hills, Sydney. We engage in research and advocacy to promote economic justice for communities in the Asia-Pacific region and accountability for Australian corporations and government agencies operating there.

Geographically, our work is focused on Australia, Papua New Guinea (including Bougainville), Fiji and elsewhere in the Asia-Pacific region.

We work on many issues, including:

  • Empowering communities in the Pacific to exercise their right to free, prior and informed consent for mining projects on their land;
  • Fighting the first-ever coal mine and coal-fired power station being developed in PNG;
  • Campaigning to prevent export credit agencies (government-owned and supported financial institutions) from financing fossil fuel developments;
  • Advocacy targeting Australian connections to illegal logging, especially in PNG;
  • Changing Australian government policies that undermine sustainable economies and livelihoods and economic justice for our neighbours in the Pacific and beyond.
