About us



Launched in 2011, the International Governance and Performance (IGAP) Research Centre provides a dynamic, outward-looking research platform that addresses contemporary issues in international governance and performance. IGAP is fast establishing itself as a recognised interdisciplinary research hub and aims to influence the international governance agenda through independent, and applicable research.

IGAP forges robust networks, and partners with business, government and professional communities, bringing the best minds together to respond to critical and emerging business issues in governance processes, financial reporting regimes and performance. 

Leading academic experts collaborate together on our leading-edge research projects. International visitors provided their valuable expertise and knowledge to further our research and vision, as well as a number of guest speakers presenting at research seminars. We consult closely with our Industry Advisory Board to ensure our research is relevant to Australians and the world. IGAP has been sponsored by CPA Australia since its inception
