Roundtables – 2017

About Roundtables

The Academy Roundtables are discussion sessions bringing together insider-knowledge and research expertise from the highest ranks of the public service, universities, the broader Academy Fellowship and select early career researchers.

By invitation, they organise discussion around a specifically selected area of public policy requiring reflection, a multitude of perspectives and ultimately the formulation of reform options that are original but also practical. All Academy Roundtables produce a Policy Paper or more detailed publication, all available for public readership in the Publications and Reports section of this website.

Recent topics include "Measuring Economic Growth and Well-being", "The Social Determinants of Health" and "Taxation and Social Security?". The Academy is grateful for support from our recent partner organisations, including the Australian Treasury, the Australian Bureau of Statistics, the Department of Families, Housing, Community Services and Indigenous Affairs, the Australian and New Zealand School of Government, the National Health and Medical Research Council, the Public Health Association of Australia, and many more.
