The Edmund Rice Centre in Sydney has prepared two election report cards summarizing the policies of the parties on issues affecting Indigenous People, Asylum Seekers and Refugees and on Health, Education, Housing and Security
A Just Australia has prepared a report card on the position of candidates in each seat in regard to the treatment of refugees. Significantly no member of the Liberal Party has responded to the survey which continues the pattern of candidates generally declining invitations to attend any public forums in which the refugee issue is likely to be raised.
The Brotherhood of St Laurence has evaluated the policies of the major parties on employment, social security, housing, education, health and Indigenous Australians.
Polmin has prepared a review of the policy of each Party on Water and the United Nations. The review has not yet been placed on their website but I am happy to email a copy of the review on request.
