Migrant Rights

These groups work toward a world where people with migrant and refugee backgrounds are not discriminated against or treated unfairly, and have their human rights observed and respected.

Groups strive to end detention centres, stop deportations, abolish the hostile environment agenda and to help ensure migrants are received well and given adequate economic, social and cultural opportunities while settling in a new country.

Learn more about the issues affecting migrants, and the efforts to ensure migrants’ voices are heard and listened to.
