You are invited to attend the closing session of this year's Kaldor Centre Conference: Andrew Giles, the Minister for Immigration, Citizenship and Multicultural Affairs, in conversation with lawyer and media commentator Nyadol Nyuon OAM.

The Minister's closing address at UNSW will begin at 5pm on 18 November, followed by a reception from 6-8pm. This session is in-person only and will not be live-streamed. 

Your Full Conference ticket also includes access to all of the online conference panels (Nov 15-17) with global experts discussing critical issues in refugee law – including the impacts of Ukraine and COVID-19, the spread of 'offshoring', the promise of refugee participation and the latest research on changing the public conversation in increasingly divided communities. The conference also includes a day-long scholars’ workshop, designed for both in-person and online access. 

With the upending of geopolitics around the world, this is a vital time to do a deep dive on this year’s theme, ‘Turning points: New directions in refugee protection’. Legal practitioners can gain CPD points by participating.

For those unable to get to Sydney, a Virtual Conference ticket will enable you to participate in all of the online sessions – with authors Behrouz Boochani and Amanda Ripley, UNHCR’s Adrian Edwards and Gillian Triggs, scholars Yulia Ioffe, Itamar Mann and many more.

For those from refugee backgrounds, the Global South, and those working in the not-for-profit sector who can't pay to attend, free registration is available, so we urge everyone to join us and contribute to these important discussions.

Book your spot today.
