Researchers, thinkers and educators were invited to join our first, fascinating event, to begin our Peace and Stability Dialogue Series.

Symposium participants actively participated in co-creating the parameters of the questions and themes of our multi-year Dialogue Series.

  • Respect, Autonomy and Place - Associate Professor Yi Chen, Bond University
  • Law, Economics and Environment - Dr Michelle Maloney, Australian Earth Laws Alliance (AELA) and Law Futures Centre, Griffith University
  • Media, Technology and Communications - Professor Marcus Foth, QUT

These initial provocations will begin the process of building the parameters for the longer term Dialogue Series.

Afternoon Workshop

1.30pm to 5pm - VENUE: Room 14-217 Sir Llew Edwards Building

The afternoon session will build on the morning’s presentations and discussions.  Participants will work in small groups, to further explore the issues of most interest to them.  Participants will play an active part in posing questions and topics for the ongoing Dialogue Series, and will have the opportunity to explore issues of interest and importance to them.
