After a break in 2021 due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Australasian AID Conference (AAC) returns in 2022. Having been held in February in previous years, the conference will be shifted to the end of the year, permanently. The 2022 Australasian AID Conference will be held on 28–30 November, in partnership with The Asia Foundation.
As in previous years, the aim of AAC2022 is to bring together researchers from across Australia, the Pacific, Asia and beyond who are working on aid and international development policy (the AID in the conference acronym) to share insights, promote collaboration, and support development within the research community. With more than 650 people registering in 2020, the AAC has established itself as Australia’s premier aid and development conference.
Even before the pandemic, the AAC was a blended conference, with livestreaming and opportunities for online presentation. This tradition will continue in 2022. As before, the main emphasis will be on in-person participation and presentations, with all the opportunities for interaction and networking thereby afforded, but our virtual offerings will also be upgraded.
Call for papers and panels is now open.
