Event description

We kindly note this event is fully subscribed.

As the number of displaced people around the world continues to increase, the gap between the needs and availability of durable solutions grows wider. Resettlement plays an important role in providing solutions, and there is an increasing recognition of the potential role of complementary pathways, which can provide access to safety through other migration channels. These include labour mobility, education pathways, and community sponsorship programs.

What is the current state of play in resettlement and complementary pathways? What potential do they hold to provide solutions to a greater number of displaced people?

Join this panel of international experts to hear an update on current developments from around the world, in an event jointly hosted by the Refugee Council of Australia and the Kaldor Centre for International Refugee Law.

Date and time: 

Tuesday 27 February 2024
