Background to AYIN

About the Australian Youth Information Network

This is an email discussion list for the youth field in Australia. Maintained jointly by Anne Hugo (through the Australian Clearinghouse for Youth Studies, University of Tasmania) and Roger Holdsworth (through the Australian Youth Research Centre, University of Melbourne).

The Australian Youth Information Network discussion list hopes to draw together many different strands of the youth field's practice, and aims to be a broad-based list in terms of topics and members.
