We are excited to annouce that the data collection for both the qualitative and quantitative data are now completed! We have managed to talk to more than 90 individuals across Australia, who come from a diverse cultural, ethnic and religious background. More than 300 individuals also participated our online questionnaire!
The research team is now ‘diving’ into the rich data set to develop critical insights about the changing social perceptions and values about funeral rites, memorialisation and the public discourse about death. Three research reports will be drafted and tabled to the VIC Government with policy-informed discussions and reflections.
