Professor Graeme Hugo AO ARC Australian Professorial Fellow, The University of Adelaide delivering the annual Migration Update
Professor Philip Payton, Professor of Cornish and Australian Studies at the University of Exeter in the United Kingdom exploring the significant impacts of our migrant population in shaping South Australian culture and history
Professor Brian Galligan Professor of Social and Political Sciences at The University of Melbourne and expert researcher in Australian regional migration, and
Professor Ian Lowe AO Emeritus Professor at Griffith University in Queensland and President of the Australian Conservation Foundation – a global expert on sustainability and environmental science
The annual Migration Update Conference aims to inform researchers, policy makers, service providers and the broader community on current research in local refugee and migration matters.
The conference is an initiative of the Don Dunstan Foundation in collaboration with The University of Adelaide, Flinders University and the University of South Australia and supported by the Government of South Australia. Following success in its inaugural year in 2011 the conference has been established as an annual event.
