An Invitation from Conference Convenor
It is a pleasure to invite you to join me at the ‘Advancing Community Cohesion – Towards a National Compact’ Conference, being hosted by the University of Western Sydney (UWS) on 15-17 July 2015.
This Conference will examine international best practice for dealing with national and local issues regarding social cohesion. It will explore philosophical questions and more pragmatic aspects of community cohesion in diverse societies. The Conference will also examine the key national initiatives in place to advance community cohesion within Australia and will search for new direction.
I invite all interested in community cohesion - students and academics alike, as well as members of our diverse civic community, to share your views and to gain insights from their fellow participants.
I look forward to your contribution to the ‘Advancing Community Cohesion’ Conference deliberations and being part of important network that aims to shape Australia’s future.
See you in July 2015.
