CofFEE organises and hosts Public Policy Lectures, Workshops and Conferences. Our main event is our annual Path to Full Employment Conference which also serves as the National Conference on Unemployment.

CofFEE's annual conference brings together international and Australian researchers and commentators interested in unemployment and its consequences and the achievement of an economy that delivers full employment. Conferences have both technical and broader appeal.

The Public Policy Lecture series aims to provide the opportunity for discussion and input to the public policy debate concerning issues connected with the performance and operations of the economy, in particular as such policies impact on employment and equity.

Workshops are intended to provide a forum for discussion of technical, theoretical and methodological issues. Workshops are generally intended for academics, students and practitioners.
