The Globalisation, Families and Work Conference will be held between 1-2 April 2004 in Brisbane. The Conference is a forward-looking conference which seeks to examine the policy options, ideas and underlying values that inform work and family issues. One of the keynote speakers will be the Australian Statistician, Dennis Trewin of the Australian Bureau of Statistics. The Conference focuses on the themes which reflect long-term and ongoing changes in the social and economic structures of our society. It will also consider the long-term consequences of these issues and the possible impact of policy settings. The themes are:

  • Perspectives on the future of Australian families and work: what are the trends telling us?
  • The economics of caring
  • Changing families
  • How society chooses - policy and values, past and future
  • How society chooses - where does well-being fit in.
