KAS-ANUCES Roadshow Rule of Law (Thsi event is only available in English)

The EU Green Deal

The Konrad Adenauer Stiftung - Regional Programme Australia and the Pacific (KAS Australia) in partnership with the Australian National University – Centre for European Studies (ANUCES) is proud to announce its inaugural Roadshow Rule of Law event.

Newcastle and the Hunter Region, for those of our readers unfamiliar with it, is one of Australia’s oldest and most productive mining regions affected by the ongoing energy transition. The Delegation is scheduled to meet various local stakeholders to discuss one of the EU’s most ambitious legislative projects. In addition, in a seminar organised in cooperation with the University of Newcastle – Institute for Regional Futures (UON IRF), the Delegation will discuss questions including


What can the Hunter and Australia learn from the EU’s ambitious model – the Green Deal – to transition to a carbon neutral future? What insights can we share about our own experiences with our European counterparts? And, how can the rule of law be shaped to support the energy transition?
