In 2016, Adept Economics Principal Gene Tunny was Co-course Leader for Strengthening the Public Policy Making Process: A Course for Emerging Leaders in the Indonesian Ministry of Finance delivered by The University of Queensland’s International Development (UQID) agency. There were 26 course participants drawn from various directorates across the Indonesian Ministry of Finance.
The short course included:
- workshops on public policy in Brisbane over late May to early June 2016;
- visits to the Parliamentary Budget Office, the Treasury, Department of Prime Minister and Cabinet, and the Crawford School of Public Policy at ANU in Canberra, and
- a post-course workshop in Bandung, Indonesia over 1-4 November 2016.
Workshop topics included risk management, communicating policy, stakeholder engagement, cost-benefit analysis, and forecasting policy impacts, among others.
The course was funded by the Australian Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade (DFAT) and managed by the Australia Awards Indonesia (AAI). Gene is grateful for the support from DFAT and AAI, and very much enjoyed working with Co-course Leader John Ignatius and the UQID team, particularly Dr Greta Nabbs-Keller, Lauren Hamilton and Erin Lord-Lynch.
