Australia under Abbott: Refugees, Industrial Relations and Environment
September Fabians Forum
There has been much speculation about the next federal election. This forum will look past the headlines and answer the deeper question “What would Australia under Abbott really look like?”
In order to answer this question, three key policy areas will be explored – refugees, industrial relation and environment.
To lead this discussion we have three speakers that are experts in each field. Each speakers will explore what the policy looks like now, what it might be under Abbott and discuss the merits/failure of each approach.
Tristan Edis – Editor, Climate Spectator
Jessie Taylor – Barrister, Refugee Advocate
Siobhan Keating – Leading industrial relations lawyer
Elizabeth O’Shea – Human rights lawyer and activist
