The Centre for Policy Development (CPD) is an Australian independent and non-partisan research institute or think tank, founded in 2007. It grew out of the then magazine (and now website) New Matilda.[1][2] The founding Chair was John Menadue AO and Executive Director was Miriam Lyons. Her successor is Oxford academic and international law expert Travers McLeod.[3]
