The Reintegration Puzzle: Changing Systems From The Inside Out
On behalf of Deakin University and the conference organising committee I invite you to attend the thirteenth annual Reintegration Puzzle Conference to be held in Sydney 21 – 23 June 2017. The theme for the 2017 conference is “Changing Systems From The Inside Out”.
This year the conference will focus on how systems work to enable people to successfully reintegrate into the community after prison and how they create additional barriers. The role people with lived experience of prison can play in changing systems will also be explored.
About the Conference
Now in its thirteenth year, the Reintegration Puzzle Conference brings together individuals and organisations working to assist people to successfully reintegrate into the community after prison.
The conference has a mix of keynote and workshop style presentations covering a broad range of topics related to reintegration of people after prison. Topics include housing, employment, indigenous issues, disability, family support and throughcare.
We expect over 250 delegates to attend the conference from all over Australia and overseas. Delegates from the community sector, advocates, policy makers, corrections staff and researchers contribute to the conference.
Call for Papers
The Reintegration Puzzle Conference provides opportunities to share good practice, research and innovations that help keep people out of prison and reduce re-offending. This year presentations will focus on how ex-prisoners can be supported to navigate complex systems and the role peers can play in changing systems from the “inside out”.
Participants will share information and inspiration through:
