As Australia steps up attempts to change behaviour via the social security system with policies like drug testing and cashless debit cards, ACOSS has invited renowned welfare conditionality expert UK Professor, Peter Dwyer, Department of Social Policy and Social Work at the University of York to deliver a keynote at the conference.

Peter’s research explores social citizenship and welfare conditionality, and the impact of international migration on welfare states and welfare rights.

Tickets are also on sale for the HESTA Community Sector Awards Dinner on Monday 29 October at the Shangri-La Hotel, Sydney, 176 Cumberland Street, The Rocks. The dinner commences at 6:30pm.
