Global development policy

Our work is organized under three pillars: Australian aid, PNG and the Pacific, and global development policy. This page outlines our work under the pillar of global development policy, and is extracted from our 2018 Annual Report.

The Centre’s work on global development policy in 2018 focused on fragile states, with two discussion papers by PhD student Tobias Haque looking at economic and public financial reform in fragile states, and published research on Afghanistan by Nematullah Bizhan.
Key events included the annual Australasian Aid Conference held in partnership with The Asia Foundation, which covered a wide range of global development issues. PhD student Kongkea Chhoeun continued his comparative research into Chinese and Australian scholarships to Cambodia.

The 2018 Mitchell Oration was delivered by Sir Richard Feachem in June, and focused on the changes needed in the global aid industry to meet emerging challenges.

The Centre continued its partnership with KAIDEC, the Korea Association of International Development and Cooperation, with two centre researchers presenting at their annual conference.
