Welcome to the 11th Debating Communities and Networks Conference


Welcome to the 11th Debating Communities and Networks Conference hosted and organised by hosted and organised by Curtin University students studying through Open Universities Australia.

We respectfully acknowledge the Elders and custodians of the Whadjuk Nyungar nation, past and present, their descendants and kin. The Curtin University Bentley Campus enjoys the privilege of being located on the site where the Derbal Yerrigan (Swan River) and the Djarlgarra (Canning River) meet. The area is of great cultural significance and sustains the life and well being of the traditional custodians past and present. As representative of Curtin University through Open Universities Australia we are proud to honour the Nyungar people and value this place of shared learning. We recognise the impacts of colonisation on Indigenous Australians and are committed to moving forward together in a spirit of mutual honour and respect.

The conference will run from 27 April – 15 May 2020 and everyone is invited to join in the debates on the papers presented. This conference is fully online and free to attend.
