Submission: Inquiry into issues facing diaspora communities in Australia

Amnesty International Australia is fighting for refugees to be reunited with their families in its submission to the inquiry into issues facing diaspora communities in Australia.

It is well recognised that families often become separated when people are displaced. Processes around, and the ability to, reunite with overseas family is a significant issue facing diaspora communities in Australia. Our submission makes three key recommendations to make it easier for families to be reunited.

Amnesty works to support refugees and asylum seekers. We challenge injustice by campaigning for the Australian government to raise the humanitarian intake, improve community sponsorship and end offshore detention. Learn more about our Refugee Rights campaign here.
