Welfare reform conference: an overview
On 9 and 10 November 2000, FaCS and the Melbourne Institute of Applied Economic and Social Research hosted a conference Welfare reform: where to from here?', which was held on the grounds of The University of Melbourne.
The conference aimed to help improve the understanding within the community of the reforms proposed in the final report of the Reference Group on Welfare Reform Participation support for a more equitable society and to examine the international experience on welfare reform and its relevance for Australia.
