The Best Interest of the Child (BIC) Conference aims to bring together academics and professionals from across human services sectors with citizens to explore issues, challenges and initiatives associated with the best interests of the children. Participants in the conference will be engaged by expert keynotes and panel sessions, together with World Café and whole group dialogue sessions, to exchange insights with respect to the improvement of life experiences for children. The conference will facilitate the exchange of knowledge and experiences of participants to gain a better understanding of how conceptions and applications of the BIC influence decisionmaking, promising practices, and policy outcomes for children.
