Research translation and implementation: a bi-directional continuum

Research translation and implementation: a bi-directional continuum

Menzies Health Institute Queensland Optimising Health Outcomes Program Seminar with Prof Allan Cripps AO and Prof Andrea Marshall.
While the words 'Research Translation' are used within and across many disciplines, there is not necessarily a shared understanding of what these mean. In this seminar we will explore what research translation across the continuum looks like and the strategies required to facilitate translation of research findings into policy and practice.

Griffith Asia Institute Research Seminar: Political economy of financial reforms in authoritarian transition economies: A comparative analysis of Kazakhstan and Uzbekistan

Alexandr Akimov examines financial reforms in two countries of post-communist Central Asia, which share common Soviet past, have close geographical location, cultural, language and religious ties - Uzbekistan and Kazakhstan. Yet, their approach to economic reform was rather different. As a consequence, outcomes of those reforms varied. The difference is especially noticeable in the aftermath of the global financial crisis (GFC).
