Where To From Here: New report from the Andrew & Renata Kaldor Centre for International Refugee Law, UNSW
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. The Roundtable brought together 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, to move the debate on regional cooperation forward from abstract ideas to concrete strategies. It addressed some of the most important but difficult issues in this area, including: (i) offshore processing in Nauru and Papua New Guinea; (ii) protection at sea (including Australian maritime interception practices); (iii) protection in the Asia-Pacific region; and (iv) expanding opportunities for safe pathways to protection. The Kaldor Centre has now launched the report from the Expert Roundtable, entitled Where To From Here?. The report and related materials are available online through the Kaldor Centre website at http://www.kaldorcentre.unsw.edu.au/where-here-report-expert-roundtable-regional-cooperation-and-refugee-protection-asia-pacific
"Early Solutions planning: what can be done to promote, support and facilitate Solutions processes in the early stages of displacement?" - a joint ReDSS/ IRC study
Building on previous ReDSS studies and recommendations, in order to examine the issue of early solutions planning, the study focuses specifically on refugees who have sought asylum in Kenya and Uganda since the outbreak of conflict in South Sudan in December 2013. Between them, Uganda and Kenya are hosting just under half of the 943,803 South Sudanese refugees registered by UNHCR since December 2013.
