ACWAP 2019 Canberra

2019 Australasian Council of Women and Policing Conference

The Australasian Council of Women and Policing (ACWAP), with the support of the Australian Federal Police (AFP), will host the 2019 ACWAP Conference in Canberra, Australia from 2 to 5 September 2019.

Held at the National Convention Centre Canberra, this prestigious event on the Australasian Law Enforcement calendar, will combine the 11th Biennial ACWAP Conference and the 21st ACWAP Excellence in Policing Awards.

The conference theme "Collaboration – The future belongs to us": will focus on how law enforcement responds to women in the communities we serve and how leadership can be strengthened especially for women.

The 2019 conference will provide an ideal learning and networking forum for police officers, police practitioners, law enforcement officers, federal agents, customs, immigration, quarantine, and corrections officers, investigators, managers, police administrators, lawyers, researchers, academics, activists, students, and advocates for women's human rights both locally and internationally.


Abstract submissions

The conference invites people to consider speaking at the conference. Those interested must provide an abstract to the Program Organising Committee. More information can be found on the ACWAP website.
