The Asia Pacific Forced Migration Connection (APFMC)
Launched in London in 2013, APFMC is a cluster network that has created a hub for Australian and Asia-Pacific research scholars considering the issues of refugee law, human trafficking, labour migration and other forced migration issues. Established under the leadership of Monash Law’s Professor Susan Kneebone, it is supported by the Refugee Rights Network (RRN) Refugee Studies Centre, York University Canada.
The Australian Centre for Justice Innovation (ACJI) projects
Criminal Records Checks and Employment Project
Having a job is considered an essential part of the rehabilitation of offenders. But with the increased demand for criminal record checks as part of pre-employment processes, it’s becoming more difficult for past offenders to gain employment.
This project aims to identify the current practices of employers in Australia, as they navigate risk management, privacy and anti-discrimination.
