Kaldor Centre Principles for Australian Refugee Policy
“A successful refugee policy not only manages national borders, but also protects people who need safety,” Professor Jane McAdam told the audience gathered in Sydney last night, as UNSW Chancellor David Gonski AC launched the Kaldor Centre Principles for Australian Refugee Policy.
These Principles are grounded in evidence and informed by good practices from other countries, as well as from Australia’s past.
They provide real-world examples of how, and why, Australia can develop a better refugee policy.
Please explore the full Kaldor Centre Principles for Australian Refugee Policy or read the summary and key priorities.
