14th Australian and New Zealand Third Sector Research Conference 2018
Date: Thursday 29 & Friday 30 November 2018
Location: University of Notre Dame Australia, School of Business, Sydney NSW Australia
Conference theme: Enabling Positive Impact: Philanthropy, Accountability and Good Governance in the Third Sector.
The Third Sector is crucial to creating and maintaining a healthy and vibrant society. The Third Sector provides a critical foundation for holding governments accountable, ensuring good governance, promoting human rights, including economic, social and cultural rights and giving voice to the disadvantaged. However, to do this successfully it needs to be able to resource and measure its impact, and this is to be the key focus of our conference.
ANZTSR is inspired by the strength, courage, and innovation shown by the Third Sector and celebrate its roots in social movements that have radically improved the lives of generations. Now it faces challenges where some governments seek to undermine solidarity and reduce the Third Sector to the role of a government agent as a service deliver. In solidarity, we celebrate the Third Sector identity as a strong and independent force that continues to fight for social justice.
