Appendix 5:
Roundtables

Date Roundtable
29 July 2008ABACUS—stakeholders attended from a number of Australian Government agencies, as well as representatives from other organisations. There was a presentation on the methodology of the study and some preliminary results. Discussions were held on how findings could be used, particularly to inform policy in the Australian business community.
31 July 2008DUMA national stakeholders meeting—representatives from the AGD, the ACC and the Australian Customs Service met with the AIC to discuss national drug and crime research priorities and how DUMA can best meet those needs. The discussion included a review of the current state of the program, improved data access for Australian Government agencies and future research directions.
21 August, 29 August, 10 September 2008Federal criminal justice forum, Brisbane, Melbourne, Perth—a series of roundtables were organised by the AIC as part of the lead up to the national federal criminal law and procedure forum, involving a diverse range of participants from academia, the judiciary, the legal profession, non-government organisations, police representative bodies and the general community. The purpose of the roundtables was to generate ideas for discussion at the national forum and enable a wider range of people to be involved in the development of the agenda.
21–22 August 2008People trafficking forum, Samoa—participants included representatives from the Solomon Islands, New Zealand, Fiji and Samoa to discuss issues relating to trafficking in persons, irregular migration and labour mobility. It incorporated a higher level transnational organised crime theme, as trafficking activities have not been detected on a large scale in the Pacific and therefore are not considered a regional priority. The roundtable discussion focused on vulnerabilities that may lead to trafficking in the region.
16–18 February 2009AML/CTF Professions Project, Canberra and Sydney—five meetings involved the sectors (accountancy, legal profession, trust and company service providers, precious metals and stones and real estate) proposed to be included in the second tranche of the AML/CTF legislation. The objectives were to learn of cases of crimes of money laundering and terrorism financing being facilitated through the sector, to gain insight into the perceived risk of these crimes being facilitated either wittingly or unwittingly by professionals in the sectors and to learn of sector professionals' attitudes towards the proposed legislation and its impact on their sector. Findings contributed to a risk assessment of the vulnerability of the sectors to being involved in crimes of money laundering and terrorism financing.
24 February 2009Environmental crime—this forum involved a broad group of experts from relevant Australian Government and state/territory government agencies, non-government organisations, academia and independent research institutes to discuss the scale and significance of environmental crimes as they occur in Australia and the efficiency and flexibility of regulatory, law enforcement and criminal justice responses to these crimes. Findings were used to shape a chapter for a report and to identify and recommend areas of research to the AIC Board.
27 February and 29 April 2009Bushfire arson workshops—held to develop and refine practical resources for practitioners to implement community bushfire arson prevention programs locally. The workshops involved reviewing current bushfire arson prevention knowledge, how to use a crime prevention framework when implementing a bushfire arson strategy, and trialling the draft resources. Participants included ACT and NSW fire, police and enforcement agencies. These workshops provided an invaluable opportunity to obtain feedback on the resources and allowed the AIC to make them more relevant and usable to the target audience.
4 March 2009Corrections administrators—held in conjunction with the conference co-hosted with the Victorian Department of Justice, this conference brought together policymakers and practitioners involved with correctional programs and services, as well as researchers, academics and others with an interest in this area. The main aim of the conference was to share current knowledge and directions in correctional programming.
7 April 2009Measuring the harm from serious and organised crimes: some reflections with Michael Levi—Professor Michael Levi, AIC Visiting Research Fellow presented this seminar, which discussed some key aspects of the harm, seriousness and threat debate to government, non-government organisations and stakeholders.
8 May 2009Domestic-related homicide national advisory group—this event was attended by academics, non-government organisations and government representatives to decide how to release the research conducted by members of the group and disseminate related work.
18 May 2009(Non-sex industry) labour trafficking forum—brought together government agencies, non-government organisations and Australian and international academics to discuss the nature of the challenges in, and possible responses to, labour trafficking as it affects Australia. Insights were presented by a range of speakers from the Australian Human Rights Commission, the Salvation Army Safehouse for trafficked women and the Anti-Slavery Project.
