Background

Bio

Professor Caitlin Byrne is Director, Griffith Asia Institute. She is also a Faculty Fellow of the University of Southern California's Centre for Public Diplomacy (CPD).

Caitlin’s research is focused on Australian diplomacy with a special interest in Australia’s engagement in the Asia-Pacific region. Most recent research projects explore the role of leadership, soft power and public diplomacy—including people-to-people connections developed through international education, culture and sport—in developing Australia’s regional influence, relationships and reputation. Her research is published in a range of journals including the Australian Journal of International Affairs, the Australian Journal of Politics and History, Politics & Policy, and The Hague Journal on Diplomacy.

Recent consultancies include the development of the Australian Government Sports Diplomacy 2030 Strategy and knowledge hub; training needs analysis (international policy and strategy) for the Australian Government’s Diplomatic Academy, and the development of Australia’s Global Alumni Engagement Strategy for the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade.

Prior to joining academia, Caitlin had established a professional career which incorporated strategic management, legal, foreign and social policy roles across government, business and community sectors. Career highlights include roles with the Australian Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade (1993-2001), Queensland Government's Office for Women (2003-2005), artsMildura (2006-08) and Queensland Department of Communities (2009-10).

Today, Caitlin is deeply engaged in Queensland’s international policy community, including as a member of the Australian Institute of International Affairs (AIIA) Queensland Executive, the Fulbright Scholarship Selection Committee for Queensland, and the National Reference Board of ACICIS.
