Refugee Rights and Policy Wrongs

A frank, up-to-date guide by experts
Author: McAdam, Jane; Chong, Fiona

$29.99

Everyone has the right to seek asylum under international law. However, successive governments in Australia have declared the need to ‘stop the boats’ whatever the cost, be it human, economic, moral or legal.

In this new book, Jane McAdam and Fiona Chong find that Australia’s policies towards refugees have hardened since their bestselling Refugees: Why seeking asylum is legal and Australia’s policies are notwas published in 2014. Now, Refugee Rights and Policy Wrongs provides a wholly updated account of Australian refugee law and policy.

Bringing facts to bear on a highly politicised debate, McAdam and Chong explain why Australia falls short of its own international commitments when it comes to policies on offshore processing, detention and boat turnbacks, among others. This up-to-date account of Australia’s refugee laws and policies could not come at a more crucial time and is compelling reading for anyone seeking to understand the human impacts of Australia’s practices.

‘This book should be read by all Australians concerned about the inhumanity demonstrated by successive federal governments when dealing with refugees seeking our protection.’ — Ian McPhee AO
