Addressing filicide - Fourth International Conference for Cross National Dialogue

Tower 2, 727 Collins Street, Melbourne, Australia

Organised by

Monash University and Deakin University


A$450; Student: A$250 (Early bird rates until 30 September 2019)

Filicide is a very sad and tragic event, for the child, the family and the wider community.  Children who have died in these circumstances have no one to speak for them, but the organisers believe that through such conferences with the new prevention research, policies and strategies, that continue to emerge from this conference series, the numbers of deaths of filicide victims in Australia cn be reduced. Other countries have reduced the numbers of such children’s deaths and so can Australia. This is the goal of the conference.

Everyone interested and concerned is warmly welcome.
