Financial support to attend ALRAC 2020

There is limited funding available for those from Pacific Island countries who are interested in attending the Australasian Law Reform Agencies Conference (ALRAC 2020) to be hosted by the Australian Law Reform Commission (ALRC) in July 2020.

Objectives

The purpose of this funding is to enable those who actively contribute to law reform in Pacific Island countries to attend and participate in ALRAC 2020.

As the ultimate goal of ALRAC is to advance the work of law reform agencies across the region, the organising team is committed to ensuring as many countries in the region as possible are able to participate. The opportunity to learn from the experiences and ideas of colleagues from other countries in the region is also of significant value to all participants.    

Available funding

Funding will be available for eligible delegates to cover all or some of the following expenses:

  • conference registration;
  • economy airfares to and from Brisbane; and
  • accommodation as organised by the ALRC for the nights of 12, 13 and 14 July (additional nights of accommodation may be funded as necessary depending on flight availability).

Delegates will be required to organise and fund the necessary visa to attend ALRAC 2020.

Any further questions or concerns about eligibility can be emailed to: alrac2020@alrc.gov.au.

Applicants are invited to complete the following online application form. If preferred, applicants may instead submit the ALRAC Financial Support Application by email to alrac2020@alrc.gov.au.
