Submission to the JSCFADT Inquiry into Australia's response to the priorities of the Pacific Island countries and the Pacific region

4 July, 2024

On Tuesday 11 June, AAVA made a submission to the Joint Standing Committee on Foreign Affairs, Defence and Trade Inquiry into Australia's response to the priorities of Pacific Island countries and the Pacific Region.

AAVA's submission was developed in consultation with our university partners in the region. 

AAVA recommended... "The Australian government should support direct, targeted and sustained academic volunteering by senior scholars to provide strategic academic leadership at universities in the Pacific Island countries, not to replace the need for the universities to recruit senior scholars, but to support the recruitment process and empower junior staff while doing so. "

AAVA's submission can be reviewed here.
