Publishers Description: 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 Australias policies towards refugees have hardened since their bestsellingRefugees: Why seeking asylum is legal and Australias 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 Australias 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 Australias practices.
