Refugees and asylum seekers: a guide to key electronic resources
Compiled by Harriet Spinks of the Parliamentary Library, this guide provides web links to statistics and information about the world’s refugees, asylum seekers and others “of concern”.
It focuses on key agencies and materials that track recent developments and explore current issues. It aims to enable comparisons to be made between Australian and international refugee and asylum seeker responses and policies. Different countries vary widely in terms of standards of living, geography, political systems and migration traditions and cultures. The complexity of refugee situations and different ways of compiling statistics need to be taken into account when drawing comparisons.
