Read the report of the outcomes of the conference in this report, published by the Refugee Council of Australia and the Migration and Refugee Research Network (MARRNet). The 2019 conference continued to drive the conversation around a number of key issues that have been discussed in previous years as well as new challenges and solutions within the sector.

The theme for the 2019 conference was the refugee sector’s ‘Platform for Change’- our call for five key changes to Australian refugee policy;

  • End offshore processing
  • Treat people seeking asylum fairly
  • End mandatory indefinite detention
  • Do more to protect refugees in the world
  • Work better with our neighbours

Read more about these themes and recommendations that were discussed in the 2019 Conference Report below.
