Prof

Lesleyanne Hawthorne

 

Lesleyanne Hawthorne (PhD, MA, BA Hons, Dip Ed, Grad Dip Mig Studies) is Professor - International Workforce in the Centre for Health Policy at the University of Melbourne. Her research concerns global skilled migration, spanning policy formation, foreign qualification recognition, labour market integration and retention, and international student flows.

Lesleyanne has undertaken a wide range of cross-national and Australian projects in relation to these issues, including in the past decade policy research commissioned by the International Labour Organization, the International Organisation of Migration, the World Health Organization, the European Commission, the Australian, Canadian and New Zealand governments, UNESCO, the US Migration Policy Institute, the Global Forum of Federations, and APEC. In 2005-06 Lesleyanne was appointed to an Expert Panel of Three to conduct the most extensive evaluation of Australia’s skilled migration program in 20 years, with major policy impacts. She has completed the first in depth comparisons of skilled migration policies and outcomes in Canada and Australia (2004-07) and Australia and New Zealand (2010-12). Most recently she was appointed part of the global team commissioned to review the European Union’s ‘Blue Card’ skilled migration policy (2015-16), and completed a cycle of studies assessing global health workforce mobility for WHO (2014-17) and ILO (2014). In 2016-19 Lesleyanne is leading a major Australia-Canada study, funded by the Australian Research Council, designed to critically evaluate the efficacy and impacts of the three major skilled migration pathways (permanent compared to temporary compared to study-migration flows), with particular relevance to health. Between 1997 and 2012 Lesleyanne also held a range of Faculty executive roles. From 1997 she was Foundation Director of the Faculty of Medicine, Dentistry and Health Sciences’ International Unit, subsequently serving as Associate Dean International to 2012. In 2008-2011 she was appointed Chair of the University of Melbourne Teaching and Learning Quality Assurance Committee, the body charged with oversight of QA processes during the University’s most intensive period of academic transformation in 100 years.
