Mission and Guiding Principles
The Whitlam Institute is guided by the ‘three great aims’ that drove the Whitlam Program of 1972. They are:
- to promote equality;
- to involve the people of Australia in the decision-making processes of our land; and
- to liberate the talents and uplift the horizons of the Australian people.
“We want to give a new life and a new meaning in this new nation to the touchstone of modern democracy — to liberty, equality, fraternity.”
13 November 1972
