The International Research Roundtable is organised by IEAA and has been held annually since 2009 in conjunction with the Australian International Education Conference (AIEC). The Roundtable aims to bring together leaders and researchers in the area of international education to discuss recent research findings, new directions for future research and the implications for institutions, governments, students and other stakeholders.

As a model of using research to inform policy and practice, the IEAA Research Roundtable has become an essential event in the international education calendar. This year's roundtable provides an opportunity for emerging researchers to engage with professionals and academics in the sector through structured networking.

This year’s roundtable will feature:

  • Leading international and Australian experts
  • A review of the state of current research in the area
  • An expert panel addressing the key themes.


Key themes include:

  • Community impact
  • Public diplomacy
  • Employment outcomes

The Research Roundtable caters to the interests and needs of established and new researchers – including current research students – across a wide range of disciplines. It will also appeal to education industry practitioners and research users, government policy makers as well as research funding and commissioning agencies.
