People are the most important part of any campaign, and we put them at the centre of our research and strategy. We seek to understand why they think, feel and behave the way they do – as individuals and collectively.
We campaign using 21st century communications techniques – blending acute strategic insight and cultural expertise with cutting-edge data analytics and engagement methods to win elections, drive social change, gain support for political and economic reform.
Who we are
AUSPEX is a multinational group of individuals, many from societies dealing with conflict dynamics of one sort or another.
We have witnessed first-hand the power of ideas and narratives to move people, and bring that understanding and sense of purpose to everything we do – from democratic elections to grassroots humanitarian campaigns. At its best, communications can bridge the divide that exists in much of the world between ruling elites and the mass of people who feel powerless and disenfranchised – making a significant difference to the quality of life of millions, and giving them a stake in their own future.
