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).

Bedside to bench and back again: facilitating translational research in Australia

Menzies Health Institute Queensland Lecture with Professor Ian Frazer AC FRS
​While Australia is widely recognised for output in the basic biomedical sciences, the country's contribution to the global translation of biomedical research output into practical outcomes has been less spectacular with regulatory system favouring early stage translation. Solutions must cross the state/federal health system divide and harness competitiveness.
