September 15 - 18 2014
ANU Public Policy Week 2014 features two distinct events designed to bring the best policy thinking together: ANU Policy Outlook 2014, and a special Asia and the Pacific Policy Society conference on ‘Confronting the Pacific’s health challenges’.
ANU Policy Outlook 2014
Resilience: making public policy we want that lasts
Making public policy that meets short-term needs is easy, but making public policy that stands the test of time is a significant challenge.
ANU Policy Outlook 2014 will look at what it takes to make public policy for the long term – how to go about it, what to avoid, and what it means for our politics, public servants and institutions.
The event features a series of invite-only workshops plus four high-profile public events on the topics of tertiary education; defence policy; tax and transfer systems; and public policy resilience and reform.
Asia and the Pacific Policy Society conference: Confronting the Pacific’s health challenges
Non-communicable and water-borne diseases rank among the most daunting challenges affecting the health and development prospects of people in the Pacific Islands. The Asia and the Pacific Policy Society conference will explore practical policy options for governments concerned to address these challenges, what public finance, regulatory, health system and whole of government issues these options involve, and what development partners and regional institutions can do to help.
The outcomes and policy recommendations from the conference will be considered for a special health issue of Asia and the Pacific Policy Studies.
Presenters at the conference will include:
- Professor Tikki Pangestu, National University of Singapore
- Professor Roger Magnussen, University of Sydney
- Dr Susan Ivatts, World Bank
- Professor Adrian Kay, ANU
- Professor Rob Moodie, Melbourne University
- Marc Overmars, UNICEF
- Professor Peter Annear, Nossal Institute
