Tap into our resources on refugee issues
Australia’s next federal election has been called for 18 May, and we expect robust debate about the country’s future.
As a non-partisan research centre, UNSW’s Kaldor Centre for International Refugee Law is dedicated to providing accurate, credible information on law and policy affecting refugees and people seeking asylum.
Whether you are a first-time voter in Australia or long-time observer abroad, we encourage you to draw on our trusted expertise. Please check out our:
- Factsheets, which offer simple, accessible, and up-to-date answers to frequently asked questions about such issues as offshore processing, turning back boats, people displaced by the impacts of climate change, and an overview of Australian refugee policy.
- Research Briefs, which provide more detailed analysis of key issues, but still in a highly accessible format. These cover issues such as Temporary Protection Visas and “fast-track” refugee processing in Australia.
- Podcasts from our events, covering Australia's policy debate and issues such as community sponsorship of refugees, the challenges for Saudi women seeking protection, and Canada’s approach to asylum.

There has never been a more important time for innovative and rigorous thinking to promote durable solutions to displacement. Elections give all citizens a voice and a choice, and we hope our work can inform yours.
