New book publiced by a member of the Interest Group
by Jane McAdam
Our IG-member Jane McAdam has written a book, together with Fiona Chong, on asylum policies in Australia: ‘Refugees. Why Seeking Asylum is Legal and Why Australia’s Policies Are Not’.
Stopping the boats, blocking queue-jumpers and proving who is a ‘real’ refugee have become national obsessions. Misconceptions about refugees and asylum seekers seem to be increasing and governments and media continue to exploit anxieties in the community. This clear-headed book rejects spin and panic to explain what Australia’s obligations are and who the refugees and asylum-seekers are.
