Treatment of asylum seekers and refugees – can the International Criminal Court prosecute Australia’s leaders for crimes against humanity?

Organised by The RMIT Arts, Labor & Working Life Collective & The Refugee Advocacy Network, Melbourne

How has Australia ended up here? A modern and democratic country – and early signatory to the UN Refugee Convention – is now referred to the International Criminal Court for crimes against humanity.  Members of the panel will talk about their submissions to the ICC and will examine why has happened and how – as civil society – we can be part of a concerted effort to end this human tragedy.


  • Julian Burnside QC and Human rights advocate and submitter to the ICC
  • Professor Gillian Triggs, Vice Chancellor’s Fellow University of Melbourne & former President of the Australian Human Rights Commission
  • Mohammad Ali Baqiri, Refugee advocate formerly detained on Nauru
  • Tracie Aylmer, Human rights advocate, and submitter to the ICC
