In April 2013, the ARC Centre of Excellence in Policing and Security (CEPS) will be holding a three day conference to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the original Seminar.

The 2013 conference will examine issues from the 1963 seminar, address the evolution of human rights since 1963, and also consider new topics of concern that did not confront law enforcement in 1963. These issues include discrimination (e.g. gender, race, disability); indigenous concerns; the role of technology and forensic science; the internationalisation of policing; balancing human rights and security; interviewing; the role of modern policing; corruption and ethics; and the differing structures of policing.

The 2013 conference will be an opportunity to re-engage professionals and academics in the fields of human rights and policing, and to create a discourse about issues that face police in the 21st Century. 

Registrations open 22 October 2012. To register your interest please email humanrights2013@griffith.edu.au.
