ANZSOC 2016 Conference ‘Horizon Criminology’ Hobart, Tasmania

The 29th Annual Australian and New Zealand Society of Criminology (ANZSOC) conference was held in Hobart, Tasmania from 29 November to 2 December 2016. The theme of the 2016 Conference was ‘HORIZON CRIMINOLOGY’; ‘Looking over the horizon there are challenges for criminology and criminal justice requiring innovative interpretations and creative responses to the past, present and future.’ The ANZSOC Conference was officially opened by Her Excellency, Professor the Honourable Kate Warner, AM, Governor of Tasmania. The opening address was delivered by Dr Vanessa Goodwin, Attorney-General, Minister for Justice, Minister for Corrections, Minister for the Arts, Leader of the Government in the Legislative Council.

It was an honour and wonderful opportunity to speak at the conference;. My presentation titled ‘Learning from former prisoners who have gone straight makes sense’, covered key messages from my Churchill Fellowship research. It was terrific meeting many familiar criminology colleagues and making new contacts across the national and international criminal justice world.
