Due to ongoing lockdowns and border closures, the 2022 Australasian AID Conference will be replaced by a special speaker series co-hosted by the Australian National University’s Development Policy Centre and The Asia Foundation.
The AAC Speaker Series brings back some of our favourite speakers from the Australasian AID Conference.

Climate change, ageing populations, and the Fourth Industrial Revolution have presented the world with great challenges. Then, COVID-19 transformed our lives overnight, and we as individuals and as a society have struggled to understand and cope with this ‘new normal’. In her address, Professor Eun Mee Kim will reflect on these societal changes, especially on her own experience as President of Ewha Womans University in South Korea, and on what needs to be done so that existing inequalities are not replicated into the future.
Donald Kaberuka, Co-chair, United Nations Secretary-General’s High-Level Panel on Internal Displacement; and Chairman and Managing Partner, SouthBridge
Dr Lant Pritchett, Research Director, Research on Improving Systems of Education (RISE) programme; and Fellow, Blavatnik School of Government, University of Oxford
