Jeff Bleich Centre for Democracy and Disruptive Technologies

Organisation profile

Organisation profile

The Jeff Bleich Centre is an expert voice on emerging technology for positive social impact – in policy, laws and political behaviours in the domains of national security, governance and democracy.

The rate of change in the digital space has outpaced government planning and action, and that gap will likely widen with rapid adoption of increasingly autonomous and networked digital technologies. Democratic resilience, both within nations and across alliances, will depend upon new trusted institutions that generate public-facing and influential research, actionable solutions, a broad talent pool of new leaders, and international collaboration on democratic resilience.

The JBC is designed to earn trust by being non-partisan, non-profit, transparent in its relationships with partner institutions, accountable, and rigorously truthful in all aspects of its work. It seeks to generate public-facing and influential research by attracting and retaining the most talented social scientists and digital anthropologists in the world and providing them with platforms that allow them to deliver accessible and understandable distillations of their work for mass audiences and policymakers. It will produce actionable solutions by orientating its specific research undertakings in collaboration with institutions seeking answers to specific challenges. It will develop a broad talent pool through a program of internships, fellowships, and other programs designed to train emerging leaders. And it will promote international collaboration beginning with the U.S. and Australia alliance and extending to other allies through partnerships with policy-making institutions, universities, and international organizations committed to meeting these challenges.
