June 25-26 and June 27-28 (respectively)
Hedley Bull Lecture Theatre 1, Ground Floor, Hedley Bull Centre, Building 130.
Last year we revived the Pacific Update tradition with a one-day event. This year, the Update returns as a two-day conference. June 27th is on the Pacific island region, and June 28th on PNG. This is an event not to be missed for anyone working on the region.
The keynote speech on June 28th will be delivered by the new University of PNG Vice Chancellor, Professor Albert Mellam, who will be talking on the critical subject of higher education reform in PNG.
The Update will be held back-to-back with the 25-26th of June State of the Pacific conference (SOTP), also at the ANU. It is supported by the Asia and the Pacific Policy Studies Journal and by the Asian Development Bank Pacific Economic Management Technical Assistance. You can view programs for the State of the Pacific 2013 Conference and the Pacific and PNG Update online.
Note that you need to register separately for each event (and each day for the Pacific and PNG Update – details and registration for day one, focussing on the Pacific, are available here while details and registration for day two, focussing on PNG, are available here).
