End time: 14:00 Thursday, October 4th 2018
Location: Plaza Terrace Room, Brisbane Convention and Exhibition Centre

Join us for a 2-course lunch and a lively discussion between Amanda Vanstone, former Family and Community Services Minister and Minister for Justice among other roles in the Howard Government, now Fairfax newspaper columnist and Radio National presenter, and Annabel Crabb, political journalist, author and ABC TV presenter.

On the topic “The politics of families and family law”, Amanda and Annabel will share their first-hand experience of the Australian political process and the practicalities of how policy is made and implemented at a federal level. With the recent debate on same-sex marriage and current issues regarding court restructure, family violence and the family law review, our guests will give us their behind the scenes commentary and insights on the political difficulties in reaching consensus on family law policy.
