Where to from here? Report from the Expert Roundtable on regional cooperation and refugee protection in the Asia-Pacific
At a time of increasingly polarised debate globally, Australia faces many difficult questions about refugee protection. What is the future for offshore processing? Are boat turn-backs safe and legal? Is regional cooperation a realistic policy goal? Are there alternative ways to provide safe pathways to protection for those who need it?
On 12–13 September 2016, the Kaldor Centre convened a two-day Expert Roundtable on regional cooperation and refugee protection in the Asia-Pacific, at UNSW. Participants included a range of academics, legal practitioners, civil society representatives and other subject-matter experts, as well as representatives from the UNHCR Regional Representations in Canberra and Bangkok.
