Information received concerning allegations of human rights violations against migrants, refugees and asylum seekers. The information we have received raises concerns that discriminatory policies and practices against migrants, refugees and asylum seekers violate your Government’s domestic law and its obligations under international law, including the International Covenant on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights (ICESCR), the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights (ICCPR) and the International Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Racial Discrimination (ICERD), the Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Discrimination against Women (CEDAW), the Convention on the Rights of the Child, the Protocol to Prevent, Suppress and Punish Trafficking in Persons, Especially Women and Children (the Palermo Protocol), and the international standards contained in the Durban Declaration and Programme of Action (DDPA). We are alarmed by reports that systemic racial discrimination and racist violence against migrants, refugees and asylum seekers have been exacerbated in recent years, with this regression accelerated by the public and private response to the COVID-19 pandemic.
