Triennial International Conference of the Settlement Council of Australia

The Triennial International Conference of the Settlement Council of Australia will be held in Melbourne from 5-7 May 2016. The conference theme ‘Settlement and Citizenship in Civil Society’ acknowledges the impact of the global domain on communities, societies and active citizenship.

The conference will bring together the settlement sector, communities, service groups, academics, corporate and legal organisations and individuals from across the globe to build on current settlement knowledge, practice and community participation within a globalised multicultural society. It will provide a forum for sharing current thinking, research and good practice within international settlement contexts.

The conference will attract key innovators with an interest in how settlement can contribute to developing a productive multicultural future. These innovators will include local and international academics and cultural thinkers, seasoned and early-career researchers, experienced and emerging settlement practitioners modelling best practice, government and non-government planners, business and employment industry groups, and intergenerational communities—new and established, rural and metropolitan.
