What’s Driving the Merciless Asylum Seeker Policies in Australia?

Late last year freelance journalist Catherine Wilson invited me to give my expert opinion on the asylum seeker issue in Australia. I’m delighted to now share the piece she wrote, which appears in the Inter Press Service news agency. I feel privileged to be a part of such an important, well-researched and thought-provoking article which invites us all to put the spotlight on our own beliefs and attitudes.



Isobel Blackthorn is a regular contributor to the National Forum on the asylum seeker issue. Her first novel, Asylum, tackles the issue in a literary manner. To find out more, visit this page.
