This report details the outcomes of a case study of ni-Vanuatu alumni of Australian development scholarships. Alumni in this case study completed their scholarships between 2006 and 2010 in the fields of law and justice.
Ni-Vanuatu alumni have made strong contributions to partner-country development priorities in the legal and judicial sectors. These include contributing to achieving better governance, supporting the capacity development of colleagues, and developing specialist areas of knowledge and practice.
Most of the alumni highlighted ongoing networks and links with Australian law firms, the Australian judiciary or Australian law academics as being important elements of their daily work in the legal sector. Alumni in the Vanuatu case study held very positive views about Australia, Australians, and Australian expertise and advised they continue to use Australian expertise and practices they learnt during their scholarship.
This research was conducted by the Australia Awards Global Tracer Facility to provide the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade with evidence to evaluate the impact of the Australia Awards.
