IntroductionВ В

AccordingВ toВ theВ 1951В UNHCRВ (UnitedВ NationsВ HighВ CommissionВ forВ Refugees)В Convention, В anВ asylumВ seekerВ isВ someoneВ whoВ isВ seekingВ internationalВ protectionВ fromВ aВ wellВ­foundedВ fearВ ofВ beingВ persecutedВ becauseВ ofВ theirВ race, В religion, В nationality, В andВ conflictВ butВ whoseВ claimВ forВ refugeeВ statusВ hasВ notВ yetВ beenВ determined. В TheirВ refugeeВ statusВ applicationВ isВ processedВ byВ theВ UNHCRВ orВ aВ governmentВ thatВ isВ aВ signatoryВ toВ theВ UnitedВ NationsВ 1951В RefugeeВ Convention. В AnВ asylumВ seekerВ mustВ beВ outsideВ ofВ theirВ countryВ ofВ originВ inВ orderВ toВ lodgeВ anВ applicationВ forВ protection. В TheВ UnitedВ NationsВ estimatesВ thereВ areВ 42. 5В millionВ peopleВ displacedВ byВ persecutionВ andВ conflictВ aroundВ theВ world. В TheseВ peopleВ becomeВ refugees, В asylumВ seekersВ orВ internallyВ displacedВ people. В TheyВ fleeВ theirВ homesВ inВ searchВ ofВ asylumВ andВ refuge, В awayВ fromВ persecution. В В

Many asylums are riddled with domestic violence based claims.  This violence often comes in multiple different forms such as physical abuse,  verbal abuse and physical abuserape.  Late last year ​

В TheВ GenevaВ­basedВ organisationВ hasВ releasedВ itsВ observationsВ followingВ itsВ sessionВ examiningВ AustraliaВ onВ aВ wideВ rangeВ ofВ issuesВ includingВ theВ workВ ofВ theВ currentВ royalВ commissionВ intoВ historicalВ childВ sexualВ abuseВ andВ violenceВ againstВ women. В ButВ theВ strongestВ criticismВ wasВ overВ theВ government'sВ handlingВ ofВ asylumВ seekers. В TheВ committeeВ saidВ itВ wasВ concernedВ withВ theВ policyВ ofВ turningВ backВ boatsВ asВ thereВ wasВ theВ riskВ ofВ insufficientВ assessmentВ ofВ asylumВ claimsВ andВ becauseВ peopleВ forcedВ homeВ couldВ faceВ torture.
