The Vote: Policy Forum & ANU 2016 Federal Election series is an opportunity to engage with ANU public policy experts during the 2016 Federal Election.

Join the ANU community at a weekly panel in the Molonglo Theatre at the ANU Crawford School of Public Policy as experts discuss a different public policy issue every week until the election. The event is organised by Policy Forum with Crawford School of Public Policy and The Australian National University.

The first panel will be a no holds barred overview of the election before us. Join three ANU public policy experts in a discussion titled Policy, politics and predictions.
