ACMA Citizen conversation series – June 2013

The ACMA’s Contemporary community safeguards inquiry is examining the core principles that should guide the content of broadcasting codes of practice.

To help inform this inquiry, the ACMA is hosting a series of citizen conversations.

The themes for the public forums are classification, decency, accuracy, fairness, advertising and privacy. There is also a workshop for broadcasters on the handling of complaints under the codes of practice.

Each forum will feature contributions from subject matter experts, academics, practitioners and other industry stakeholders.

All the forums will be held at the ACMA’s Sydney office in Pyrmont. The public forums will also be streamed live on the web.

The forums are free of charge but registration is essential.
