Manus Island: Lives in Limbo

It is now three years since Australia announced the Regional Resettlement Arrangement with Papua New Guinea. Three years on, three men have died, many have been injured and 900 still languish in limbo with no idea if, when or to where they will ever be resettled.

Human Rights Law Centre’s Director of Legal Advocacy, Daniel Webb, has recently returned from his third trip to Manus Island. His first trip followed the death of Reza Barati. His most recent trip comes in the wake of the unanimous ruling from the PNG Supreme Court that the Manus detention centre is illegal – a time when the situation is changing and tensions are rising.

Daniel will be joined by Madeline Gleeson, Research Associate at the Kaldor Centre and author of Offshore: Behind the Wire on Manus and Nauru.

Join Daniel and Madeline to discuss the current situation on the ground, the future of the Manus arrangements and alternatives to the current deadlock in the Australian asylum seeker policy debate.

This discussion will be moderated by the Human Rights Law Centre’s Director of Advocacy and Research, Emily Howie who is heading up HRLC’s new Sydney office.

We hope you can join us.
