17th Reintegration Puzzle Conference

Rydges World Square, Sydney
19th-21st June 2024

Stepping Up


The Reintegration Puzzle:

On behalf of the Justice Reform Initiative (JRI) and the conference steering committee, welcome to the 17th Reintegration Puzzle Conference. This year’s theme – Stepping Up – enables us to focus on the parts of the system that fail people experiencing disadvantage and imprisonment.   It is an invitation to think through how communities and systems might change, or ‘step up’ to better support people returning from prison.  

The Reintegration Puzzle Conference brings together advocates, practitioners, researchers and others interested in reducing the cycle of disadvantage and imprisonment. We focus on the lived experience of people who have been in the justice system, drawing from that experience to drive ideas for change.  

Rydges World Square in Sydney has been chosen as the venue for the 2024 conference. Centrally located, the venue has everything Sydney has to offer right on the doorstep. Social events, including welcome drinks and a dinner will enable delegates to network and share outside the formal conference environment.    

The 17th conference will pay tribute to its founder, Professor Joe Graffam, who sadly passed away in July. It was his wish that the conference continue on, providing an opportunity for people interested in improving reintegration to meet, share, innovate and advocate. JRI are thrilled that Joe trusted us with the conference, and in 2024 we will deliver our first Reintegration Puzzle. 

We look forward to seeing you in Sydney.
