AIC Commonwealth agency forum 2012

Australian Institute of Criminology, 74 Leichhardt St Griffith, Canberra ACT
02 April 2012

The Australian Institute of Criminology (AIC) is inviting up to three senior delegates from Commonwealth agencies to attend the AIC’s 2012 Forum for Commonwealth Agencies on Monday 2 April, 2012.

The AIC has been Australia’s national research and knowledge centre on crime and justice for almost 40 years, conducting crime and justice research for the Australian government, as well as for state jurisdictions, policing agencies and private organisations.

This Forum has been specifically designed to provide other Commonwealth agencies with an update on some of the AIC’s current research. The format comprises a day of presentations on research directly related to Commonwealth programs and initiatives.

Topics will span security issues, health, indigenous policy, research and policy adoption, program evaluation, cybercrime among other areas of practical research carried out by the AIC.  Many of the techniques and research results have relevance far beyond the Attorney General’s portfolio, affecting health and social policy, public administration, ‘closing the gap’ in Indigenous communities, and social cohesion. 

The presentations will also give agency representatives a better understanding of the AIC’s capacity to assist in social policy research and evaluation and an insight into some of the cutting edge research and policy methodologies that the AIC uses to inform Government and the wider sector.

The Forum is at no cost to attendees (although any travel costs are the responsibility of each agency) Lunch will be provided. Please RSVP names of attendees to events@aic.gov.au.

NOTE: This forum is for senior agency staff and has limited availability.
