Publisher: Canberra, A.C.T. Expert Panel on Asylum Seekers 2012Description: PDF.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: August 2012Summary: This Report has been compiled over a six week period. In this time we have consulted widely on asylum issues with political leaders, other members of the Parliament, agencies and departments of government, non-government organisations (NGO s), academics and other experts as well as those in the wider community. We have also held discussions with representatives of some refugee communities in Australia and refugees who travelled to Australia more recently through irregular means. Our consultations have been conducted in many meetings and through the more than 550 written submissions that we have received. In all these processes, we have encountered a broad cross section of views on asylum issues and on the direction that Australian policymaking should take. Those views are deeply held and have been strongly argued.Availability: (1)

Responding to protracted refugee situations : lessons from a decade of discussion /

by Milner, James | University of Oxford. Oxford Department of International evelopment. Refugee Studies Centre | Loescher, Gil.

Publisher: Oxford, U.K. University of Oxford. Refugee Studies Centre 2011Description: PDF.Other title: Refugee Studies Centre. Forced Migration Policy briefing ;.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: January 2011Summary: Building on a decade of discussion between actors within the refugee policy, research and advocacy communities, it is important to understand how the 2009 ExCom Conclusion can be used to get greater engagement from the broader range of actors required to respond to PRS effectively. To this end, the purpose of this policy brief is to examine in detail the history and process of identifying PRS as a significant international policy problem, the steps leading to the 2009 ExCom Conclusion and a consideration of the text of the Conclusion. For many years, broader discussions on PRS were eclipsed by a series of refugee emergencies and other pressing international security concerns of states. It is only recently that PRS have been recognised as a pressing international issue deserving both immediate and long-term consideration. The negotiations which led to the 2009ExCom Conclusion built on a decade of policy development and research on the causes, consequences and possible responses to PRS. This work argued that the scale and dimensions of the problem of PRS demand an urgent global response.Availability: (1)
