On behalf of Deakin University, and the conference organising committee welcome to the 16th Reintegration Puzzle Conference to be held in Perth, Western Australia on 4-6 November 2020. (rescheduled from June). The theme for the conference is “Changing Seasons, Changing Lives”.
Visit our conference website here.
This year the conference theme will focus on regeneration, the process of renewal, restoration, and growth. The Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people of Western Australia recognise that the distinct seasons have distinct purposes. How can we draw on these lessons in our work with people leaving prison? With the current prison system at capacity, how can we influence policy and practice at the state and federal level so that fewer people are caught in the revolving door of prison?
The role people with lived experience of prison can play in changing systems will also be explored once again.
We welcome a broad range of perspectives from those who are supporting people to change their lives after prison and those that are on the journey.
