    In a post-Brexit world

    When: Saturday 22 October at 12:45PM

    Where: Bonython Hall

    Speakers: Dr Joanna Howe

    Can we manage labour migration without succumbing to fear? We need to completely rethink the way Australia regulates and approaches labour migration. Joanna advances three proposals which would improve both the regulatory design and enforcement capacity of Australia’s labour migration program. This session will provide a roadmap of how Australia can successfully manage its temporary labour migration program in a post-Brexit world.

    For some of us home is a physical shelter, an asset, a source of comfort, identity and belonging. For others the scene of a crime, of nightmares and a point of no return. In changing times, with people on the move, displaced and disenfranchised, we ask the poets, the travellers, the story tellers to examine what home means to them and perhaps understand what it means for us all.
