From climate change to taxation, and from energy security to making the most of international aid, the big issues facing the G20 will be in the spotlight at the Asia and the Pacific Policy Society Conference which begins on Tuesday.

The two-day conference – at Crawford School of Public Policy at The Australian National University – brings together more than 25 world-leading experts. The conference will focus on the G20 agenda, and include specific sessions on key G20 policy issues.

The Asia and the Pacific Policy Society is a community of scholars and policymakers and was established alongside Crawford School’s flagship academic journal, Asia and the Pacific Policy Studies.

Society President and Crawford School Director Professor Tom Kompas said the conference would be an opportunity to hear some of the world’s leading thinkers discuss global policy challenges.

“The conference brings together some of the world’s leading experts to share their perspectives on a range of our most pressing policy challenges,” he said.

“This year the conference focuses on the G20 agenda to support the hosting of the G20 leaders’ meeting. It’ll feature internationally-renowned scholars and practitioners sharing their insights in a program of public talks on issues including development policy, tax policy, social policy, energy security, climate change and food policy.”
