Globalising the Australian Economy Symposium

The Economic Geography Study Group of the Institute of Australian Geographers (IAG) is pleased to announce a symposium on the theme of globalising the Australian economy.  Multiple paper presentations will highlight the dynamic nature of the Australian economy from a spatial perspective. This symposium commemorates Fagan and Webber's Global Restructuring:  The Australian Experience, which overviewed how the Australian economy responded to the structural changes associated with the 'new international division of labour'.  Since the mid-1990s, however, further changes have impacted the Australian economy, notably the recent resources boom, significant growth in trade with China, the finalisation of neo-liberal tariff reductions, as well as the diverse effects of the digital economy. Contributions from both junior and senior academics will highlight the changing nature of agriculture; higher education; manufacturing; finance; commodities; energy; and global integration.

This symposium is open to the public but we kindly ask that you register below. Details are as follows:
