Summary of activities

* In financial year 2020, Human Rights Watch Australia (HRWA) met with Australian government officials to raise concerns about human rights violations in the Asia Pacific and Middle East. * We reported and advocated on the use of chemical restraints on older people with dementia in aged care facilities. * HRWA visited Western Australia to research and conduct interviews about deaths of Aboriginal men with psychosocial or intellectual disabilities in custody and seek an update from prison authorities as to any changes since our report release in 2018. * We commissioned research projects that documented human rights violations in Indonesia, Vietnam, China, India and Myanmar. * We urged the Australian government and other democratic governments to take action to stop the Chinese government’s mass arbitrary detention of Turkic Muslims in Xinjiang, and Beijing’s harassment of diaspora communities. * HRWA provided information to the public about human rights violations on a range of countries, including Myanmar, Indonesia, India, Papua New Guinea, China, Vietnam, Cambodia, the Philippines, Africa, Iraq and Syria.
