The 2016 Crawford PhD conference focuses on the increasingly global nature of public policy challenges and the need for solutions to respond creatively and intelligently to this changing dynamic.

Climate change, growing economic and social inequalities, security threats, the movement of people, pandemics, and other major policy issues that the world faces all require understanding from a global perspective. This knowledge can help tailor institutional and policy reform at the global, regional, national, and local levels. In short, these global challenges require smart solutions.

The conference provides a forum for students, academics, business interests, and policymakers to consider the range of issues at play: What dynamics, constraints, and levers operate at the local, national, and regioconal levels to address the global characteristics of major challenges? How effective are the global networks and institutions which inhabit global public policymaking? How can global co-operation be enhanced in the face of increased security threats? What are the domestic and wider international implications for governments and for the non-government and private sectors in tackling, or failing to tackle, global challenges? How do national governments persuade electorates to vote in the global interest?

The conference features keynote address by Jennifer Westacott, Chief Executive, Business Council of Australia, and a panel discussion. The panellists are:

  • Marie Coleman, Chair, Social Policy Committee, National Foundation for Australian Women
  • Mark Cully, Chief Economist,Australian Government Department of Industry, Innovation and Science
  • Anne Marie Grisogono, Adjunct Professor, Science21, Flinders University
  • Matthew Sussex, Director, Academic, National Security College, Crawford School, ANU
  • Helen Sullivan, Incoming Director, Crawford School, ANU
