A new partnership with the prestigious University of New South Wales (UNSW) in Sydney, Australia—Meridian 180’s first in the Southern Hemisphere—will drive the inclusion of Australian thought leaders in Meridian’s global network.
The Sydney base will play a pivotal role in spearheading the exploration of pressing issues in the region today. It will launch full operations in the second half of 2018.
There are almost 100 Meridian 180 members in Australia today, and they include academics and experts at the country’s top research universities, business leaders, artists, and policymakers.
The base will be directed by a committee of leading scholars including Fleur Johns, a professor and associate dean (Research) at the UNSW Law School, and Rob Brooks, UNSW Scientia Professor. Both also serve as members of Meridian 180’s Core Idea Group.
