Policy, Research & International
The AAG Hot Topic
The purpose of the Hot Topic is to focus on an issue to set a policy, research or education agenda looking forward for the next 12 months.
The Glenda Powell Travelling Fellow is a leading Australian expert who presents on the AAG Hot Topic for the year whilst travelling to at least three AAG Divisions (states and territories), that are not being visited by the Gary Andrews International Fellow.
