Australian Institute of Family Studies Conference: Sustaining Families in Challenging Times
The conference will focus on the six major themes that shape the Institute’s current Research Plan – Economic wellbeing of families, Families and work, Social inclusion, Violence, abuse and neglect, Family transitions and family law, and Children, young people and their families.
The biennial AIFS Conference is an important means by which the Australian Institute of Family Studies promotes research that identifies and raises understanding of factors affecting family wellbeing in Australia. The Conference also provides an opportunity for policy-makers in government, service providers and practitioners, researchers and community organisations to meet and exchange knowledge.
Keynote speakers will be announced shortly. You may submit abstracts for a paper, symposium or poster that addresses one of the six conference themes. Submissions are now being accepted via the website.
The AIFS Conference 2010 coincides with the 30th Anniversary of the Institute.
