Amnesty International (AI) and Human Rights Watch (HRW) report that refugees arriving in Australia are being treated inhumanely and abusively. According to the report, “around 1,200 men, women, and children who sought refuge in Australia, were forcibly transferred to the remote Pacific island nation of Nauru suffer severe abuse, inhumane treatment, and neglect.”
The Government of Nauru has introduced a new Child Protection and Welfare Act which has been welcomed by UNICEF for “bringing Nauru into alignment with many international standards.”
