This week's PD News roundup looks at the use of public diplomacy tools for refugees and asylum seekers. An Irish tech start-up created software to address the lack of transparency in charitable giving for refugees, while an Australian social enterprise employees refugees and asylum seekers to teach cooking classes and encourage cross-cultural communication. Other headlines looked at the need for action in combatting Australia's offshore migrant processing system, and a call for more medium to long-term aid for Syrian refugees in Jordan.
