International Development Election Forums

Ahead of the 21 May Federal Election, the Development Policy Centre co-hosted a series of International Development Election Forums with the Australian Council for International Development and the International Development Contractors’ Community.

The Forums aimed to provide political parties with the opportunity to convey their platform and priorities for Australia’s international development cooperation and humanitarian assistance programs. They were also an opportunity for stakeholders, the media and the general public to hear from the candidates on these issues and to gain clarity on the parties’ specific policies and commitments ahead of the election.
