Andrew & Renata Kaldor Centre for International Refugee Law

Director: 
Jane McAdam

The Andrew & Renata Kaldor Centre for International Refugee Law was established in 2013 through the generosity of Andrew Kaldor AM and Renata Kaldor AO.

Through high-quality research feeding into public policy debates and legislative reform, the Centre brings a principled, human rights-based approach to the issue of refugee law and policy in Australia. It maintains core research programs in various aspects of refugee law, including international refugee law and comparative practices; human rights-based forms of protection (complementary protection); Australian administrative and constitutional law; statelessness; border security; regional protection; and displacement linked to climate change and disasters.

The Centre creates an important bridge between scholarship and practice and provides an independent space to connect academics, policymakers and NGOs. It provides thought leadership in the community through public engagement and community outreach.
