On 25 and 26 September 2019, La Trobe Law School’s Australia-Indonesia Disability Research and Advocacy Network (AIDRAN) will be hosting its second annual International Conference on Disability and Diversity in Asia. The conference will take place in Malang, in Indonesia and see eminent speakers from Indonesia, Australia, the US, India, Bangladesh, Iraq to present their research to fellow researchers, Australian and Indonesian government officials, and disability activists.
“We’re hoping the AIDRAN conference will be a great opportunity to bring scholars, activists and disability advocates from all walks of life together to exchange knowledge, experiences and ideas. Not only will this be a great way for participants to learn about the latest developments in disability research, but it will also be a good way to get researchers from different countries to learn from each other, and see things from a different perspective,” AIDRAN founder Dina Afrianty commented.
The conference is sponsored by La Trobe University, Brawijaya University and the Knowledge Sector Initiative and funded by the Australian Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade and implemented in partnership with Indonesia’s National Development Planning Agency. It will be attended by well-known La Trobe Law school academics in the discipline including Patrick Keyzer and Darren O’Donovan, with Professor Patrick Keyzer delivering the conference keynote speech.
Tickets for the conference have now completely sold out, but La Trobe Law School will be live-tweeting the conference from its Twitter account on 24 and 25 September. If you’re interested in following along, make sure to keep an eye on the conference hashtag – #ICDDA19!
