World Refugee Day

Today is World Refugee Day and coincides with celebrations for Refugee Week in Australia. This year Refugee Week runs from Sunday 18 June to Saturday 24 June 2017 and provides an opportunity for us all to experience and celebrate the rich diversity of refugee communities.

UNHCR, the UN Refugee Agency, is a global organisation dedicated to saving lives, protecting rights and building a better future for refugees, and for World Refugee Day 2017 has suggested we read a book about refugees.

QUT Library holds a wide collection of resources about refugees, including the following highly recommended reading.
