The government’s response to the cancellation of the visit by the United Nations’ Special Rapporteur on the human rights of migrants is evidence of the bewildering doublethink regarding Australia’s “legitimacy” as an international leader, UNSW's Human Rights Clinic says.
More than 60 scholars have signed an open letter to the Prime Minister to express their concern at the cancellation of a visit to Australia by the UN Special Rapporteur on the Human Rights of Migrants. Many were due to meet with the Special Rapporteur next week in Sydney.
As the Diplomacy Training Program, based at UNSW Law, celebrates 25 years, some of its alumni have shared stories of the difference the advocacy program has made to the most vulnerable in the Asia-Pacific.
Eighteen frontline human rights advocates from Asia and the Pacific will come to UNSW this month for consultations with politicians, industry, journalists, academics and NGOs on how to ensure business promotes peace, development and human rights.
