The Melbourne School of Government is proud to present Prof. Gillian Triggs, Prof. Erika Feller, and Mr David Manne 'In Conversation'. David will facilitate an informal conversation between Prof. Triggs and Prof. Feller, discussing the current political climate regarding migration, and the relationship between migration and modern democratic systems. What is the role of research in an era of forced detention and family separation? How can research and practice inform each other to address current challenges? The session will conclude with questions & answers and refreshments.

The session will also briefly provide some introductory information about the Melbourne School of Government's Doctoral Academy - a new initiative to be launched in early 2019.
