Associated Research Centres


ILWSThe Institute for Land, Water and Society is one of Charles Sturt University (CSU)'s four Centres of Research Excellence. While the majority of our researchers are environmental scientists, social researchers and economists, our members also include researchers working in and across the fields of eco-agriculture, communication, education, regional development, cultural heritage, tourism, modelling and the arts.

We are aligned with ten schools across CSU which reflects our multi-disciplinary nature. We have well-established partnerships with State and Federal Government Departments, agencies and other tertiary institutions as well as linkages with international organisations and overseas universities. With over 200 members, we are well-positioned to address the critical natural resource management, biodiversity and social issues faced by Australia and other nations.

ARC Centre of Excellence in Policing and Security

ARCThe Australian Research Council (ARC) Centre of Excellence in Policing and Security (CEPS) was established by the ARC in 2007 to boost policing and security research capacity in Australia amid the growing complexity and internationalisation of transnational crime in the post 9/11 environment.

Headquartered at Griffith University, the ARC Centre partnership includes The Australian National University, The University of Queensland, and Charles Sturt University. CEPS has developed numerous partnerships with industry partners, and Australian and international researchers.
