About Us

What we do

The Australian Policy & History (APH) Network aims to provide policymakers, the media and the general public with relevant, accessible information about the historical background to current events and issues. We connect historians with those making and commenting on public policy, so that the insights gained from the past can be used to inform decision-making in the present, in turn leading to better outcomes in the future.
The APH website publishes articles on current news and affairs by professional historians and other writers engaged with history in Australia and internationally.

On this website, you can:

  • Read our Australian Policy & History papers, written by historians who are experts in their fields.
  • Subscribe to our email list, to be informed about Australian Policy & History initiatives and news
  • Find out how to submit a paper to Australian Policy & History
  • Contact us if you want to find out more
