Danijel Malbasa

National Refugee-led Advocacy and Advisory Group (NRAAG)

Danijel Malbasa was a goat herder in his native Yugoslavia before his family fled war. He survived two civil wars and was raised in a refugee camp before his family were resettled in Australia in 1999. Now he’s an industrial relations lawyer in Melbourne who volunteers his time and legal skills to help asylum seekers and refugees in his spare time. Danijel has written extensively on the refugee experience. He advocates for refugee-led form of advocacy as the best way to shift the narrative and shape public opinion.
