A symposium advancing bushfire arson prevention in Australia
Thursday 25 and Friday 26 March, 2010
Monash Conference Centre, Level 7, 30 Collins Street, Melbourne




  Each year, thousands of bushfires are deliberately lit around Australia, causing significant damage to human life,
  communities, ecosystems and the economy. This symposium will bring together a wide variety of stakeholders
  to set out priorities and plans for advancing the knowledge and understanding of bushfire arson prevention in
  Australia.

  Through big-picture plenary presentations and topic-specific workshop sessions, participants will actively
  examine current bushfire arson prevention approaches, identify gaps in our current knowledge and practice,
  and develop plans for addressing them. The themes to be covered include:

            •     Identifying, managing and treating people at risk of committing bushfire arson
            •     Identifying communities with high arson potential and working with them to reduce it
            •     Improving deterrence, capture and conviction rates of bushfire arsonists
            •     Developing an integrated approach to bushfire arson prevention

   This symposium is for anyone involved or interested in bushfire arson prevention, including those from:

            •     Federal, state and local government
            •     Fire and emergency management services
            •     The criminal justice system
            •     Mental health services
            •     Non-governmental and community organisations
            •     Research institutions

  The symposium is a joint initiative of the Australian Bushfire Arson Prevention Initiative (a collaboration of the
  Monash Sustainability Institute, the Monash Centre for Forensic Behavioural Science, and Bond University),
  and the Australian Institute of Criminology.
