About the webinar

Following on from the five years of successful and engaging annual Refugee Alternatives conferences, the Refugee Council of Australia (RCOA) will host regular webinars exploring important issues in refugee policy and practice.

The first webinar of the new webinar series explored the global refugee protection needs in 2022, including a deep dive on mass displacement in Africa (including Ethiopia, DRC, and Sudan), Afghanistan, and Myanmar. Experts with lived experience explored the situation for people on the ground, shared expert analysis of the international diplomacy underway, the connections to Australia and what Australia can do in relation to these conflicts and the mass displacement.

The webinar gave participants the latest information on what is happening around the world and also empowered them to take action to help people facing forced displacement in our region and beyond.

The webinar was hosted by RCOA President Jasmina Bajraktarevic-Hayward, and included expert speakers - former Australian Human Rights Commissioner Chris Sidoti, Rohingya refugee activist and Chair of the Asia-Pacific Refugee Rights Network Hafsar Tameesuddin, and RCOA Special Advisor Ahmad Shuja Jamal and Deputy CEO Adama Kamara.
