It is that time of year: the Refugee Council of Australia (RCOA) annual consultations on Australia’s refugee and asylum policies are underway.
We are seeking feedback, suggestions and ideas from refugee communities, people seeking asylum, and individuals and organisations working with refugee communities. This is an important opportunity to share your views about Australia’s policies. Your feedback will inform RCOA’s ongoing research, submissions, reports and advocacy in Australia and internationally.
Read our key issues paper to see what we will be talking about.
This event is also an opportunity to hear about and discuss how refugee-led advocacy and self-representation can be strengthened at local, national and international levels.
Who should come?
This consultation is only for people who are from refugee communities or who are seeking asylum.
This consultation is particularly designed for community members who are interested in:
- providing input on issues of concern to communities (see questions in our key issues paper);
- providing feedback on the advocacy work of the Refugee Council of Australia;
- finding out more about refugee-led advocacy that has been happening over the past 12 months and how to get involved.
To ensure that this consultation is focussed on hearing the views of communities, people who are working for services or who cannot speak about refugee or asylum policy from lived experience, should contact firstname.lastname@example.org to find out how else you can get involved in these consultations.
