Housing Affordability in the ACT - An Oxymoron?

Recent media reports paint a disturbing picture of housing affordability in the ACT, particularly for young people and families in rental accommodation or seeking to rent, as well those wishing to enter home ownership. Indeed, by some measures, the ACT rental market appears to be the worst in Australia.This IGPA Public Lecture will examine the policy context and framework under which housing affordability has deteriorated in Canberra where the Government exercises a much higher level of control over the supply compared to other jurisdictions.The Seminar is jointly convened by Professorial Fellow Jon Stanhope AO and Adjunct Professor Dr Khalid Ahmed PSM. The PanelDR CARLETON BRUIN CHRISTENSEN studied philosophy in both Australia and Germany. He has taught at various universities including Newcastle, Sydney, Frankfurt, Leipzig and the Australian National University in Canberra. He is now a researcher at the University of New South Wales.Besides his work on the German philosophy of the late 19th and early 20th centuries, he has published on the philosophy of technology and sustainability, e.g., “Human Ecology as Philosophy” and “Two Kinds of Economy, Two Kinds of Self—Toward More Manageable, Hence More Sustainable and Just Supply Chains”.Bruin is keen to build interdisciplinary links to other areas of inquiry relevant to issues of the environment and sustainability. He is also actively engaged in local politics, particularly on urban development and public transport, and is a founding member of the Canberra Planning Action Group, which is seeking to develop a Canberra-wide perspective on, and improvement of, the ACT government’s strategies of urban renewal.ANNA DENNIS graduated from ANU with Honours in Sociology in 2018. Anna has been engaged in a range of community and social issues as an activist and an advocate. She is on the steering committee of the Refugee Action Campaign, and played significant parts in campaigns for marriage equality and higher education reform. This year, Anna worked with Better Renting to lead a community engagement project demonstrating the importance of energy efficiency for renters, who often pay high utility bills and experience health problems living in inefficient homes. She worked with renters in Canberra to make their homes warmer over winter, and continues to advocate for policy changes to alleviate this burden. PROFESSORIAL FELLOW JON STANHOPE AO was a member of the ACT Legislative Assembly from 1998 to 2011. He was the Territory’s Chief Minister from 2001 to and 2011, and also held the portfolios of Health, Attorney-General, Municipal Services, Economic Development and Treasury during his tenure. He was Administrator of the Australian Indian Ocean Territories from 2012 to 2014. Besides IGPA, Jon is currently engaged with Winnunga Nimmityjah Aboriginal Health and Community Service as an adviser. This event is free to attend but please RSVP through Eventbrite

International Day for the Elimination of Violence Against Women

The University of Canberra embodies the ideals of a safe, respectful and inclusive community for all peoples. This event acknowledges the ongoing suffering and mistreatment of women and provides a platform for the University, its people and members of the wider community to declare their support in eliminating violence against women.In line with moving towards a Civic University we will host and engage members of the ACT community including representatives from the Domestic Violence Crisis Service, Canberra Rape Crisis Centre, Companion House, ACT Government, local schools and others.Join us on Monday 25 November 2019 at 10:30-11:30am on the Northern Concourse wearing something orange to support in eliminating violence against women.  Brief History of the DayThe 25th November has been observed as a day against gender-based violence since 1981. This date was selected to honor the Mirabal sisters, three political activists from the Dominican Republic who were brutally murdered in 1960 by order of the country’s ruler, Rafael Trujillo (1930-1961).On 20 December 1993, the General Assembly adopts the Declaration on the Elimination of Violence against Women through resolution 48/104, paving the path towards eradicating violence against women and girls worldwide.Finally, on 7 February 2000, the General Assembly adopts resolution 54/134, officially designating 25 November as the International day for the Elimination of Violence Against Women and in doing so, inviting governments, international organizations as well as NGOs to join together and organize activities designed to raise public awareness of the issue every year on that date.UN, n.d.United Nations n.d., International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women 25 November, UN, New York, viewed 15 October 2019, https://www.un.org/en/events/endviolenceday/background.shtml
