After Robodebt

11 July 2023 @ 9:00 am - 1:00 pm AEST

Family looking at bills

Join us for a discussion on the role of civil society, the media, the law and the public service in delivering responsible, ethical, and inclusive government automated decision-making.

On the eve of the release of the findings of the Royal Commission on the Robodebt Scheme it is timely to look back at the origins of public awareness of Robodebt and look forward to the lessons for informing future engagements with government use of automated decision making (ADM). 

This half-day symposium will reflect on the role of various actors involved in bringing Robodebt to light, and challenging its operation, namely: 

  • Civil society & service users
  • Journalists, news and media
  • The legal profession
  • Public service 

Structured around a series of interactive roundtable discussions, this reflection will be geared towards learning from the past to shape future engagement with government use of ADM. 


This event will be held in-person at the University of Sydney Law School and online via Zoom.
