Event Details

Twilight Public Lecture
Royal Commissions: How do they shape public policy?

 

A panel of past Chairs of Royal Commissions, along with expert commentators, will discuss how royal commissions have become the model for ensuring public accountability.

 

Australia’s highest form of inquiry, the now ubiquitous royal commission model, will be put under its own public scrutiny on Monday, 5 March from 6:00pm-7:30pm during a public lecture hosted by the Sir Zelman Cowen Centre at Victoria University.

 

Confirmed speakers include:

  • The Hon. Marcia Neave AO, former Chair of the Royal Commission into Family Violence (Victoria)
  • The Hon. Bernard Teague AO, former Chair of the Victorian Bushfires Royal Commission
  • Alan Kohler, financial journalist and newspaper editor (commenting on the terms of reference of the Financial Services Royal Commission)

 

Moderated by Professor David Weisbrot AM, former President of the Australian Law Reform Commission, the conversation will explore how the methods and transparent approaches of royal commissions have gained the public’s trust.

 

The speakers will share their insights into the purpose, powers and limits of royal commissions, processes for giving evidence and making submissions and the management of recommendations. How effective have royal commissions been in shaping new public policy?

 

The public lecture follows the sold-out Faith-Based Governance & Dispute Resolution Conference hosted in December by the Sir Zelman Cowen Centre, which focused on the key governance implications expected from the findings of the Royal Commission into Institutional Responses to Child Sex Abuse.

 

Places are strictly limited - register now to secure your tickets.

 

The event will be held at Victoria University Convention Centre, Level 12, 300 Flinders Street, Melbourne.
