Overview

Millions of refugees and asylum-seekers face harsh conditions across the region, and countries as disparate as Australia and China violate international law by forcibly returning people to places where they face a real risk of serious violations. Key freedoms, such as freedom of expression, are under threat as many countries intensify their crackdowns and seek to tighten control on civil society.
