The Conversation and CAUSINDY partner to improve Australia-Indonesia understanding

The Conversation, an independent source of news and views from academics and researchers, has for the second time returned as a media partner to CAUSINDY .

“We’re very excited to work with CAUSINDY to explore the challenges and opportunities that advances in technology will bring to both Indonesia and Australia,” said Prodita Sabarini, Jakarta Editor of The Conversation, of the CAUSINDY 2017 conference theme of technology and innovation.

This partnership will see The Conversation explore coverage opportunities with CAUSINDY speakers and delegates, who are engaged in academic research.

Topics will cover how Australia and Indonesia can learn from one another and the role technology can play in the bilateral relationship.

“Learning from each other will help both countries make the best of new technologies and better prepare for the disruption that may arise,” said Sabarini.

In 2016, The Conversation ran a series on issues pertaining to Australia and Indonesia with highlight pieces ‘How we can fix Australia’s Indonesia anxiety’ and ‘To improve their relationship, Australia and Indonesia should focus on shared geopolitical interests.’

“CAUSINDY is delighted to have The Conversation return as a media partner to improve awareness and understanding between and Australia and Indonesia through quality explanatory journalism,” said Tim Graham, Chief Executive Officer of CAUSINDY.

The aim of The Conversation is to allow for better understanding of current affairs and complex issues. In doing so, it will hopefully allow for a better quality of public discourse and conversations.

“We look forward to another engaging CAUSINDY series on The Conversation but this time on the exciting developments of technology and innovation in both countries,” said Graham.
