The history of Australian refugee policy
The history of Australian refugee policy has been shaped by the political priorities of successive national governments, developments in international refugee law and the evolving nature of forced migration around the world. This project examines Australia’s response to asylum seekers and refugees over the past four decades, including mechanisms for refugee status determination and humanitarian resettlement.
