February 19 & 20 at the University of South Australia in Adelaide.

Building on the success of Refugee Alternatives since 2017, this year’s conference will be jointly hosted by the Refugee Council of Australia and MARRNet (Migration and Refugee Research Network) priority will be given to speakers from refugee backgrounds in recognition of the crucial role their voices lend to the sessions.

This is an opportunity to build skills, to network with others working for justice for refugees and people seeking asylum, and to collaborate on alternatives to refugee and asylum seeker affairs in Australia. The event will be two days jam-packed with unique perspectives, ideas for action and strategy, and opportunities to meet others working in the space. Join us!
