Refugees and Detainees - Survey Results
Wednesday, 6th March 2002 at 12:03 pm

Recently Pro Bono Australia carried a special survey on behalf of several organisations into the current Federal Government policy on Refugees and Detainees.

The “Not for Profit survey on refugees, asylum seekers and detention centres” produced polling results that showed for the first time a clear disapproval of the refugee policy.

The survey prepared by a Victorian umbrella group of Not for Profits coordinated by the Justice for Asylum Seekers and Pro Bono Australia provides evidence that debunks recent media polls that have been showing that a majority of Australians are in favour of the Federal Government policy on detainees.

A Pro Bono Australia Special Bulletin went out on Monday 11th February discussing the involvement of Third Sector groups in the refugee area. Readers from or involved with Not for Profit organisations were asked to take part in the survey formulated by several Not for Profit organisations.

After only 13 business hours Pro Bono Australia received 275 responses – a six- percent participation rate. At the time of sending this edition the figure had climbed to 356.

The survey results show that 74% are not in favour of the Howard Government policy.
