This talk will refer to the global crisis with forced migration, focusing specifically on the situation of refugees and people seeking asylum in Australia. The presentation will consider a gender perspective highlighting the challenges faced by women seeking asylum and migrant women in vulnerable situations.

There will be time for questions and answers following the presentation.
