Blogs on Refugee and Asylum issues

Asylum is the blog of the Melbourne Refugee Studies Program. The blog is intended as a space for discussing policy, sharing research and reports, posting information about public forums and events, and any other issues of importance to asylum seekers and refugees. Contributions are welcomed from researchers, educators, students, health, social services and legal professionals, those who work in community agencies providing services to asylum seekers and refugees, policy makers, program managers, and above all people from refugee backgrounds and people seeking asylum are invited to directly share their views and experiences.

Refugee Research Blog provides a platform for academic and non-academic research and comment on issues surrounding people seeking asylum and refugees. The blog is hosted by Researchers for Asylum Seekers, an interdisciplinary organisation based at the University of Melbourne. The primary audience is people working with people seeking asylum and refugee issues in academia, the non-government and community sector, various levels of government, advocates, consultants, and the general public.
