The Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences is excited to partner with the OECD Forum, which will see participants network, exchange experiences, and share knowledge and expertise on global policy trends at the forum in Paris, held 29-30 May.


The 2018 forum theme, What Brings Us Together, will focus on three interconnected issues:

  • International cooperation for the 21st century
  • Inclusive growth solutions to ensure opportunity for all
  • Digitalisation, addressing policy frameworks designed prior to the era of digitilisation.

Representing the University will be Professor Colm Harmon, Associate Professor Adam Kamradt-Scott and Associate Professor Stefanie Schurer, along with the OECD scholarship recipient and invited students from the Sciences Po, a University of Sydney dual degree program.


The event will also welcome leaders from civil society, high level government representatives as well as prominent members of academia and media.
