APCRR is a biennial meeting, and in fact, APRRN was founded as a result of the 1st Asia Pacific Consultation on Refugee Rights in Kuala Lumpur in 2008. Since then, APCRR has been held in Bangkok (2009, 2010, and 2014) and in Seoul (2012). In 2014, APCRR5 was attended by over 120 participants from across the region working on refugee issues.
APCRR serves as platform to bring together refugee rights practitioners from around the region to discuss and strategise ways to address challenges and share best practices from around the region and the globe. This year APCRR will focus on prioritising action plans for APRRN members and APRRN working groups. Additional workshops and side sessions may focus upon community engagement strategies, working with refugee youth, protection at sea, and alternatives to detention.
APCRR is also the general body meeting for APRRN and is the forum where members elect the APRRN Steering Committee and provide the blue print for the APRRN strategic plan.
Funding support: Funding support will be available for a limited number of participants. Funded participants will be determined by the APCRR6 Preparation Committee and will be assessed against set criteria.
