This chapter focuses on how business associations in Australia engage in public policy analysis and how this role has evolved over recent decades. Business associations in Australia are voluntary associations that rely on subscriptions from member firms or subordinate associations to pursue their roles. They range from industry-specific or sectoral associations servicing or representing a particular industry, to broader cross-sectoral or umbrella associations. This chapter explores the rise of policy analysis and RBA by business associations in Australia, focussing initially on the role of the Business Council of Australia and then on other major national business associations.Issues explored include the challenges of policy analysis, how business associations see their role in this field, and how in operating in this arena they relate to governments and to other business associations and stakeholders.

Keywords:   Australian policy analysis, business associations, policy capacity, policy development, business council of Australia
