CDI at conference on the future of aid in Asia and the Pacific | 9-10 May 2013 | Melbourne
CDI is a consistent contributor to dialogue and debate about the role of development assistance in our region and globally. With the relative shift of economic and diplomatic power from the countries of Europe, North America and Japan, a number of countries that were the recipients of aid are now becoming aid donors, even though they may eschew such terminology. This trend, along with the increase of private and non-government sources of assistance, has thrown up a range of questions about the future of aid in Asia and the Pacific. These themes were the subject of attention at a two-day event organised jointly by the Asia Foundation, Australian National University, Lowy Institute for International Policy, and University of Melbourne, held in Melbourne on 9-10 May 2013.
CDI Director, Dr Stephen Sherlock, attended the event and contributed to a broad-ranging discussion that featured speakers and participants from Australian and international academic institutions, non-government development institutions, think tanks and government agencies. Dr Sherlock took the opportunity broaden CDI’s network of connections in the field of international aid and development.
