Australian Refugee Action Network (ARAN) is a national alliance of refugee action and advocacy groups which call for Australia to uphold its obligations under international human rights law, with regard to people seeking asylum.  

ARAN’s Aims and Objectives:

  • To provide an avenue for communication and collaboration for action and advocacy groups with a wide membership or which operate as networks in their cities or regions
  • To promote a stronger and more coordinated approach to campaigns and days/periods of action across the nation
  • To facilitate information dissemination so that grass roots action/advocacy groups are better informed and equipped to undertake actions in their own localities
  • To offer a single point where various activities across the country can be listed and promoted for quick reference

Membership of ARAN is open to any grassroots activist/advocacy group which:

  • Has a membership of its own
  • Is campaigning for Australia to uphold its obligations under international human rights law with regard to refugees and people seeking asylum; and/or is raising awareness and supporting refugees and people seeking asylum in the community
  • Is committed to working collaboratively and constructively with other ARAN member groups
