Director of Research
Morgan Begg is the Director, Research at the Institute of Public Affairs
Morgan joined the IPA in 2014 to advance a major report into The State of Fundamental Legal Rights in Australia. Since then Morgan has also written a number of research papers, opinion articles, IPA Review essays and submissions to parliamentary inquiries, on a variety of topics, including the issue of judicial appointments, public health restrictions, the GST, and the proposed Voice to Parliament.
Morgan’s interests are in preserving constitutional government and the rule of law, and protecting and extending the rights and freedoms of Australians, such as freedom of speech and religion. He became an admirer of the IPA during the debates surrounding the constitutional recognition of local government, the Gillard government’s Human Rights and Anti-Discrimination Bill 2012, and its ongoing research into section 18C of the Racial Discrimination Act.
