Gillard goes to Washington

Australia’s former prime minister Julia Gillard has joined a leading United States public policy think-tank as an adviser on women’s education.

Gillard will be a non-resident fellow at the Brookings Institution in Washington DC, affiliated with its Center for Universal Education. She will be involved in major policy research, including improving girls’ education in developing countries.

But she isn’t the first Australian staffer to be head-hunted by Brookings. Warrick McKibbin, the Australian National University’s economist and carbon pricing expert co-directs the policy research institute’s climate change policy programme.
