This led to the creation of a second task force in late 1999--the Unauthorized Arrivals in Australia Task Force (UATF)--which was to report on: issues of international cooperation to combat irregular migration and people smuggling; measures to bolster the international protection framework; and steps to improve coordination and efficiency among Australian Government agencies.
The UATF report resulted in the adoption of a "comprehensive and integrated unauthorized arrivals strategy." (13) There are three key elements to this strategy: prevention of irregular migration; disruption of people smugglers and their clients en route; and the development of"appropriate reception arrangements." Much of the unauthorized arrivals strategy developed by the UATF remains in place today; however, it has been modified and extended over time, particularly in late 2001.
