Today the Lowy Institute launched 'Australia and the 1951 Refugee Convention', a new Analysis paper from international migration expert and Lowy Institute Nonresident Fellow Dr Khalid Koser. 

Koser argues that the implementation of the 1951 Refugee Convention is failing the interests of both states and refugees, and that Australia is well-placed to lead an international effort for reform, which should include greater accountability for states that cause displacement, measures that reduce the need for long-distance asylum-seeking, and steps to reduce the burden on receiving countries.

You can read or download a copy of the Analysis here. Tomorrow on The Interpreter we will post a response to the paper from Professor Jane McAdam, Director of the Andrew & Renata Kaldor Centre for International Refugee Law at the University of New South Wales.
