Event description

Description

Executive Director of Refugee Legal, David Manne, will assess the current state of asylum and refugee policy in Australia.

David sat on the board of the Refugee Council of Australia for seven years and has headed 10 successful High Court challenges, including several landmark asylum and refugee legal cases. He currently sits on a number of non-government boards, including the Victorian Foundation for Survivors of Torture Ethics Committee, and has been appointed to the UN High Commissioner for Refugees Advisory Board of Eminent Persons.

Register now for this rare opportunity to hear one of Australia’s most passionate advocates for refugee rights set out what must be done to change Australia's increasingly harsh treatment of those seeking refuge from terror and oppression – change which upholds the values of fairness, decency and humanity.

Please contact Wagga Wagga Amnesty Action group convenor Gabrielle at robinson_gm@hotmail.com for more information about this event or to get more involved in your local area.

This is a free event as part of the Amnesty - ANU Law 2018 Speaker Series.

Donations will be accepted on the night if you wish to contribute a small amount towards the cost of the event.



ANU Law Reform and Social Justice is an initiative of the ANU College of Law. In our teaching, research and community engagement, we explore law’s complex role in society, and the part that lawyers play in using and improving law to promote both social justice and social stability. Our dedicated student volunteers run projects that assist community legal centres, schools and the general community to gain better understanding and access to law and justice.
