On August 23, 2022, Charles Sturt University together with the Islamic Sciences and Research Academy hosted a conference on resilient democracy. This conference brought together over a hundred delegates, many of whom were academics, service providers NSW government representatives, community leaders, and non-profit organisations.

The aim of the conference was to explore strategies and generate solutions toward building a democratically resilient society that fosters Australia’s resilient and multicultural communities.

Participants listened to panel discussions and presentations, contributed to Q&A sessions, and were invited to engage in activities that provided solutions to achieving a democratically resilient society and its diverse communities. Panelists provided the audience tools and tips on how to effectively utilise democratic participation to avoid the spread of misinformation, populist ideologies, distrust, and conspiracy theories.

A report on the conference has since been published, highlighting the key findings from the conference. You can access the report here, and view summary notes on the conference in the images below, too.
