"Not for Export"

Why the International Community Should Reject Australia's Refugee Policies

Legacy Link
The government of Australia has taken increasingly aggressive measures in recent years to prevent unauthorized asylum seekers from reaching its shores. One year ago, on September 26, 2001, it enacted new legislation that extended the legal basis for its policies, which are among the most restrictive in the developed world. Since that time, the government has sought to make its own approach the norm in the international arena.
