The AAT uses a range of methods to engage with, and seek feedback from, our users about the services we provide. We also undertake various activities to promote a greater understanding of the AAT’s role and procedures.

Stakeholder engagement

We hold liaison meetings from time to time with people and organisations who deal regularly with the AAT and other stakeholders with an interest in our work. Participants may include government agencies and other decision-makers, legal practitioners, migration agents, advocacy groups and other representative bodies. Liaison meetings provide a forum for information exchange, discussion about developments at the AAT and an opportunity for us to seek feedback about our operations.

We undertake consultation on proposals for significant changes to our practices and procedures for which we are responsible, including seeking comments from our users and other stakeholders. 

Community outreach

The AAT pursues a range of opportunities to engage with the community to promote awareness of review rights and how our review processes operate. We also provide speakers to talk about the AAT at community information sessions arranged by other government agencies and community organisations.

Speeches and papers

AAT members and staff give presentations about the AAT at conferences, seminars and other forums . A number of past speeches and papers given by Presidents of the AAT are available to download.
