Unlocking Fortress Australia: Opportunities & Challenges
While ‘fortress Australia’ has saved countless lives since March 2020, we have reached the inevitable point where the walls of Australia’s ring-fence must come down. With many rejoicing at the opportunity to rejoin the global community and jumpstart the Australian economy, there are genuine concerns about the safety of vulnerable members of our population.

Join the University of Wollongong Vice-Chancellor Professor Patricia M. Davidson and University of Newcastle Distinguished Laureate Professor Nick Talley as they co-moderate a distinguished panel of experts in infectious diseases and public health, data modelling, business, economics and indigenous health to discuss the opportunities and challenges facing Australia as we start to reopen our international borders.
