Abbreviated titleCities and Successful Societies
OtherThis year’s conference will explore the theme ‘Cities and Successful Societies’. Despite its reputation as a cultural hub and tourist destination, Melbourne is also home to many social problems found in ‘less successful’ societies. From record housing unaffordability, growing inequality to a domestic violence epidemic, Melbourne provides a unique lens through which to study the byproducts faced by so-called successful societies. If Australia is the ‘lucky country’ and Melbourne the world’s most livable city, then just what do we mean when we label a city or society successful? This is the questions at the heart of the intellectual programme of this year’s TASA conference.
