Australia, New Zealand and China relations and the impact on education
As a research collective located across universities in Australia, New Zealand, China, and Hong Kong, we would like to invite you to participate in our online survey: Australia, New Zealand and China relations and the impact on education. The aim of this 20-minute survey is to capture the impact of the current geopolitical relations between Australia, New Zealand and China on various Education sectors. We are interested in the perspectives of teachers, lecturers, researchers, and professional staff working in schools, higher education and research institutes on how the recent geopolitical shifts have impacted your work and your work environment. We also invite you to share your views about possible future developments, challenges, and opportunities that you see emerging from the current situation. We also plan to carry out follow-up interviews, and the final question of the survey asks if you are interested in taking part.

A series of training webinars ending with a hybrid stakeholder debate.
Through a series of practical workshops and roundtable discussions, participants will be introduced to different policy actors and the process of policy engagement will be demystified. Channels for engagement will be explored, and researchers will leave equipped with the tools and practical skill-set to actively bridge their research and the policy community. The climax of our series is a hybrid event in Berlin, which will feature lightning talks on possible policy lessons by invited environmental historians, and a feedback debate with policy stakeholders.

Conferences and Call for Papers Reminders
2022 InASA Conference: It’s Time…Again
ANU and Old Parliament House, Canberra
30 November – 2 December 2022.
The Conference committee is calling for abstracts of 150 words and a short biography of 75 words by 30 June 2022.
The theme of the conference draws its inspiration from the 50 year anniversary of the Whitlam government’s election in 1972 – an event seen by many as not merely a political turning point, but also a social and cultural awakening from a long post-war torpor. Elected on December 2 – a date which coincides with the last day of our 3-day program – Gough Whitlam’s reforming Labor government ended 23 straight years of Coalition rule. Fittingly, conference participants will enjoy a keynote address in the historic House of Representatives chamber at Old Parliament House – one of Australia’s most cherished buildings and the stage for the dramatic conclusion to that tumultuous chapter in Australian history. The conference drinks and dinner will follow the keynote address in the elegant King’s Hall, between the two chambers. You can submit your abstract here. More details about the conference including the keynote speakers, postgraduate travel bursaries and conference events will be announced shortly. You may also direct any queries to email@example.com
