A virtual program exploring issues of asylum, refugee status, and Australia’s settlement policies.

People have been seeking refuge in Australia for over 100 years. Since 1945, Australia has accepted many refugees and displaced persons for resettlement.

In this virtual program, students will learn from the personal stories of asylum seekers and the reasons why someone may choose to leave their home country.

With a focus on Australia’s resettlement policies and the role of UNHCR, students will uncover the human rights of asylum seeker and refugees.

This program will run as a 45 minute virtual session. For more information on how virtual sessions are run, please see our Frequently Asked Questions page.
