Aim and themes

The major aim of this Conference is to bring together all interested stakeholders – industry, government, Indigenous organisations, the legal profession, non-governmental organisations and the academe – to consider the legal and policy framework for Northern Australia’s ecological future. 

The conference themes will address four strategic areas for creating an effective legal and policy framework to secure a rich and robust northern ecological future: 1) governance; 2) regulation; 3) values in development; and 4) knowledge bases for policy and decision-making.  Each theme will serve as a platform for a round table discussion, followed by a thirty minute open discussion. Each round table will be led by a well-known moderator, with participation by 5 discussants. Below we list confirmed participants, with others to be advised.

These four themes form the basis of the Northern Australian Law Futures (NALF) Research Program. For background on the themes and involvement in the NALF Network visit:
