Rebuilding our Damaged Reputation - A Strategy for Australian Leadership on Refugee Protection
In October, the United Nations General Assembly will decide whether or not Australia is elected to the UN Human Rights Council. The coming vote has prompted greater scrutiny of Australia’s human rights record, with much of the international attention being on the government’s treatment of people seeking asylum. This comes at a time when nations in Africa, the Middle East, Europe and Asia are responding to the greatest crisis in forced displacement since World War II. In his lecture, Paul Power will examine:
The concerns being expressed internationally about Australian refugee policy.
How Australia might begin to restore its damaged reputation and show constructive leadership in international responses to refugee needs.
The role civil society organisations and concerned citizens in Australia could play in bringing about change.
Paul Power has been Chief Executive Officer of the Refugee Council of Australia, the national peak body on refugee policy, since 2006
