The Sydney Centre for International Law (SCIL) at Sydney Law School warmly invites you to the launch of The Protection of Refugees with Disabilities: Forgotten and Invisible? The book will be launched by Australia's Disability Discrimination Commissioner, Alastair McEwin.


There will be two book launches, the first in Canberra on 26 September and the second in Sydney on 28 September.


About the book

In their ground-breaking new book, Professor Mary Crock, Laura Smith-Khan, Emeritus Professor Ron McCallum AO and Professor Ben Saul, of the Sydney Centre for International Law, explore the intersection of one of the world's oldest human rights instruments - the 1951 Refugee Convention - with one of the newest - the Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (CRPD). Funded by DFAT and a private donor, Ms Judy Harris, the book draws on three years of international fieldwork and examines the legal implications of the CRPD relative to the Convention's real-time implementation in six different refugee settings.
