Human Rights Seminar Series 2 – Asylum Seeker Policies

Australia’s Human Rights performance has recently been examined as part of the United Nations Universal Periodic Review. United Nations member states recommended increased attention to human rights in several areas, including Australia’s policies with respect to asylum seekers; children’s rights and juvenile justice; and LGBQTI rights and marriage equality.

UNAA Victoria, in partnership with Deakin University School of Humanities and Social Sciences, is proud to present a series of three seminars which bring together academic and community experts in constructive dialogue about positive human rights change with respect to these issues.

The seminars are free of charge but registration is required.
