“A successful refugee policy not only manages national borders, but also protects people who need safety.”

The Kaldor Centre Principles for Australian Refugee Policy are grounded in evidence and informed by good practices from other countries, as well as from Australia’s past.

They provide real-world examples of how, and why, Australia can develop a better refugee policy.

They challenge us to reimagine our current approach, so that both refugees and the nation can prosper amid today’s real global challenges.

Australia can achieve this, because we’ve done it before. We have a rich history of welcoming refugees since 1945, and we can draw on our past experiences – as well as good, current practices from overseas – to create a more positive, sustainable, long-term refugee policy.
