In December 2010, the Australian Government announced the Convergence Review, a comprehensive examination of Australia's approach to the rules of the new environment of media and communications. Professor Lumby and Associate Professor Kate Crawford's took up the challenge and in this report they provide a foundation for the national debate on Convergence - a debate we have to have. This will be a unique opportunity to discuss the way forward for Australia's new media and communications environment with leading experts from government, Australian industry and the tertiary sector.
