Event description

Description

The Brisbane branch of Young Australians in International Affairs is excited to announce our first skills development event of the year: the 2017 Policy Brief Writing Workshop. The workshop is designed for students and early career professionals who would like to gain a greater insight into the policy-making process, hone their writing skills, and learn the tricks of the trade from a seasoned policy professional.

The workshop, hosted by Young Australians' very own Katrina Van De Ven, will feature an interactive presentation on policy writing and allow participants to practise their skills in a supportive and collaborative environment.

The area of policy that we will be focusing on is soft power: what it is, its role in international affairs and how Australian leaders should be exercising it.

This is a free event - please use the Evenbrite link to secure your place now!
