If you listen to some politicians and voices in the media, you might well believe that asylum seekers are 'illegal'. You might think that they should wait their turn in the so-called 'queue'. You might think that they pose a potential threat to our national security, and that the government is right to keep them from our shores. Or you might take a humanitarian stance, believing that drastic border protection policies, though harsh in effect, are necessary to deter asylum seekers from endangering their lives on risky boat journeys to Australia. However logical these conclusions might seem, the problem is that they are based on widespread misunderstandings about why and how people seek asylum, and what Australia's international legal obligations are. This book rejects spin and panic to provide a straightforward and balanced account of Australia's asylum policies in light of international law. Quantity Available: 1.
