Social Security Reform: Revisiting Henderson, Poverty and Basic Income

The 2018 Henderson conference will focus on how the social security system can more effectively respond to issues of poverty and inequality.

Over two days, more than 20 speakers will cover key changes that have taken place since the 1970s and the Henderson Poverty Inquiry – to the labour market, families and the position of vulnerable groups – and will assess the effectiveness social security's response. It will also canvas different options for reform, including proposals for some kind of a basic income in Australia.

Bookings are essential. A conference dinner will be held on the night of Thursday 15 February 2018 at Graduate House, 220 Leicester Street, Carlton. Tickets to this dinner are limited; purchase yours upon registering for the conference to secure your spot.
