The Australian Social Policy Conference (ASPC) is the pre-eminent multidisciplinary conference concerned with issues of social policy in Australia. It attracts over 300 participants from academia, government and the community social welfare sector internationally.

Conference discussion will be organised around the following themes:

  • Poverty, welfare and social inequality
  • Communities, families and children
  • Digital technologies and social policy
  • Environment and social policy
  • Disability and rights
  • Human services
  • Ageing
  • Health and social policy
  • Indigenous peoples
  • Chinese social policy

Contributed papers can:

  • Report the results of research
  • Discuss conceptual approaches to contemporary social policy
  • Describe work in progress
  • Raise issues for debate.

Potential presenters are asked to submit an abstract of up to 250 words for consideration, nominating a theme from the list above. Criteria for selection will include academic quality, originality, accessibility and relevance to current debates in social policy. Where papers are based on empirical research, preference will be given to abstracts showing evidence of research results. We welcome papers presenting all points of view.

As in past years, the conference will include a special stream on Chinese social policy. This includes studies of the Chinese diaspora in other countries (including Australia). All sessions will be conducted in English.

International contributions are particularly encouraged. The refereeing process for these submissions will be expedited to ensure that potential presenters have sufficient notice.

We are also inviting proposals for special sessions, including groups of related papers within the contributed paper streams. Please send proposals to aspc@unsw.edu.au
