Our research themes
CBLG focuses on three transversal research themes to generate knowledge that assists both private and public sectors deal with the challenges they face. Each theme draws on CBLG’s research expertise in its disciplinary areas, within and across these discipline areas.
The essence of our research revolves around producing knowledge about business and economic transformations, along with law reform, to empower private and public sector organisations in effectively confronting and navigating the challenges they encounter in the Tropics and beyond. In this way, transformation and reform serve as foundational pillars, forming a substantial part of CBLG's research.
Given the distinct and extensive scope of challenges related to each of the three transversal themes, we actively advance specialized knowledge to address these unique complexities. Moreover, our research transcends individual themes, embracing an interconnected approach that spans all three transversal themes. This fosters a comprehensive and holistic systems-approach, enabling us to tackle fundamental challenges in a unified manner.
In collaboration with JCU's College of Science and Engineering, CBLG leads JCU's Transformational Change Hub that is a pan-university enabling capability to harness complex systems modelling and adaptive decision making to produce evidence-based, transformative solutions.
