About the conference
The Australasian AID Conference (AAC), held annually in partnership with The Asia Foundation, has become an integral part of the Australian and regional aid calendar. The aim of the conference is to bring together researchers from across Australia, the Pacific, Asia, and beyond who are working on aid and international development policy (the AID in the conference title) to share insights, promote collaboration, and help develop the research community.
The 2023 Australasian AID Conference was held on 5–7 December.
What people are saying about the conference
“From my perspective, the Australasian Aid Conference event is a great example of how the Crawford School brings together academics, policy makers and practitioners for an open exchange of views and for mutual learning.”
Professor Brian Schmidt AC, Vice-Chancellor, ANU
“This event has emerged as a very important annual venue for serious discussion of national, regional and global issues in international development, development cooperation and aid effectiveness.”
Gordon Hein, Senior Vice-President of Programs, The Asia Foundation
“From my own perspective and all those I connected with there and since, it was a great success in terms of the breadth of issues, the diversity of presenters and the balance between information and engagement.”
Shannon Ryan, Manager - Food Security and Natural Resources, World Vision Australia
