SSPR seminar series 


Dr Dean Carson and Professor Tony Barnes present ‘Come, go, sit, stay: The challenges of studying the population of the Northern Territory’, on Thursday 20 March from 12pm to 1pm.

This seminar examines the future of the Territory’s population, specifically structure and dynamics, through population projections over a 25 year period, including migration intensions into, out of, and around the Territory, as well as Indigenous population mobility.

Professor Tony Barnes will provide some background into the critical issues for Territory population research; how the research program at the School for Social and Policy Research was established; and what impact the research might have on NT Government policy.

Dr Carson will discuss some of the key research directions and how the knowledge created might contribute to population systems theories more generally.

The seminar also looks to the future and the emerging population issues that demand research attention.

Dr Carson and Professor Barnes are research staff with the School for Social and Policy Research.

This seminar takes place in room 1, building 23 (C23.01/Blue 5.1.01), Casuarina campus, and will be video-conferenced through the library seminar room, Alice Springs campus.
