We are pleased to be back in the Southern Hemisphere for our fourth Australasia Conference. Previous conferences in the series were held in Melbourne (2015), Sydney (2017) and Christchurch (2019).
The 2023 conference on Global Crises and Regional Futures will be held at the RMIT University in Melbourne, Australia between 26th – 28th November and in partnership with the European Union Centre at RMIT and for the first time with the Australia New Zealand Regional Science Association International Inc (ANZRSAI).
In a global environment marked by ‘polycrisis’, in which the very future of the planet is at risk, this conference will provide an opportunity for regional studies and science scholars to share research insights into the implications of these crises for regions in different parts of the world. How are regional authorities seeking to address crisis? Are some regions proving more resilient than others? How can divergent trajectories in the context of climate, economic, security and polarisation crises be explained?
This conference will bring together researchers from Asia, Europe, Australasia and beyond in-person and online to examine these and related questions. If your work addresses the implications of global crises for regional futures, please join us in-person or online for the conference. Abstracts of up to 250 words are welcomed on topics related to regional futures. The abstract submission deadline is 12th September 2023.

See you soon in Australia!
