From Ideas to Impact: A Discussion with Michael Sheldrick

Michael Sheldrick is a West Australian who heads Global Citizen - a New York based organisation working internationally on global conflicts. He is home in WA on a visit with his family, and will talk at the March meeting of the AIIA WA. He has just written a timely handbook of practical advice for those who are distressed about the way the world is going and want to know how to do something about it.

 From Ideas to Impact: A Playbook for Influencing and Implementing Change in a Divided World, reflects his experiences from Global Citizen and draws on many of the other change makers and policy entrepreneurs he has met and worked with over the past decade since leaving UWA. There is a whole chapter on WA.

AIIA WA helped Michael start out with a grant to assist a polio campaign in India. He has been building on that investment ever since. This book reflects knowledge and understanding of working through international conflicts with extraordinary achievements. It is a must read.

The Australian Institute of International Affairs for WA

The Australian Institute of International Affairs (AIIA) is an independent, non-profit organisation seeking to promote interest in and understanding of international affairs in Australia.

The WA Branch of the AIIA was founded in 1947 by Professor Fred Alexander of the University of WA, who became its first President. Like the earlier established branches in the other Australian states, the WA Branch was modelled on the British Royal Institute of International Affairs, based at Chatham House in London.

The WA Branch has maintained a steady membership, including many prominent West Australian and national leaders. Successive State Governors have served as the Branch's Official Visitor. The aim of the institute is to be an independent and non-political body that facilitates and encourages the study and debate of international questions.

Membership fees includes a subscription to The Australian Journal of International Affairs as well as two tickets at the member price to each of our our monthly meetings where you will learn about developments in international affairs of concern to the people of Western Australia. We rely on membership contributions and sponsorship of special events to keep our association running: we receive no core funding from government.
