International Metropolis Conference and Report Pre-launch

October 29, 2018

Sydney & Melbourne, Australia

The International Metropolis Conference provides a unique platform to debate, discuss and critique policy approaches, practice and research in relation to migration. Metropolis 2018 generated global interest and influence as it gathered 750 Australian and international experts, academics, business leaders, government, key decision makers and community organizations. The Centre and the Human Rights Law Centre, where Daniel is Director of Legal Advocacy, used this platform to pre-launch a report entitled ‘Ripped Apart: The Permanent Separation of Refugee Families in Australia’, that will give the issue a human face by sharing the stories of families directly affected. The report will also support these personal voices with careful research documenting the health, economic and social costs of separating refugee families. Daniel Webb is working with a highly qualified, cross-disciplinary team of doctors, international lawyers, economists and affected families to produce a report that is compelling, authentic, and targeted towards change.
