The third Crawford Australian Leadership Forum convened at The Australian National University’s Crawford School of Public Policy in Canberra on 19-21 June 2016.

The Crawford Forum is the flagship annual event for Australia’s leading university and its public policy school. It brings together, by invitation only, 150 of Australia’s top leaders - fifty each from business, the public sector and politics, and the research and advocacy community, together with some distinguished international speakers, to address the major issues confronting Australian policymakers, business leaders and innovators.

The overall theme of the 2016 Crawford Forum was ‘Global Realities, Domestic Choices: responding to systems under strain’ and the Forum again had two strands; one focusing on geopolitics and governance and the other on economics and society. The Forum addressed the challenges facing Australian policymakers and business leaders as they respond to the interlinked changes in the economic, social, geopolitical and natural systems.

As with the successful forums in 2014 and 2015, our strategic partners in the Forum were the Business Council of Australia and the Australian Financial Review. The 2016 Crawford Forum sponsors were the ANZ Bank, CISCO, General Electric, Virgin Australia, PwC and Corrs Chambers Westgarth.
