Australia and New Zealand Public Policy Network Conference 2022

The Public Policy Network is an informal collective of Australian and New Zealand scholars of public policy and public administration. The annual conference provides an opportunity for scholars at all career levels to meet and network in a single-stream (no concurrent sessions) format. Presentations can range from early stage research ideas to completed papers.

Tuesday 1st February, 2022 & Wednesday 2nd February, 2022Main Conference

Venue: Due to the uncertainty related to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, the 2022 Public Policy Network Conference will be hosted as a hybrid event. We will have a meeting room at our Clayton campus for Melbourne-based presenters to meet in person, subject to restrictions that may be in place at the time of the event. Presenters and audience members based outside Melbourne, and those based in Melbourne who are not able to meet in person, will be able to join the event via Zoom. We are not expecting presenters to travel for this event.

A graduate research workshop will be held on Monday, 31 January 2022. Presenters will be given more time to deliver their presentations, and dedicated discussants will provide personalised feedback.

Thanks to generous support from Monash University, there is no registration fee for this event.
