Murray is a recognised leader in civics and political education and curriculum development within Australia and internationally. He directed the Consortium Project in Civics and Citizenship Education, as well as a major ARC-funded project on youth participation in democracy, and has been a key investigator in many other projects in civics covering: * Youth Electoral Study * values, policy and civics education in the Asia-Pacific region * civics education, assessment and benchmarking * the first phase of the International Association for the Evaluation of Educational Achievement (IEA) international civics study

Researching civics, citizenship and political education helps me understand modern democracies and the important role that education plays within them. Democracies face substantial challenges and the role that education can play to sustain them is significant.
