Focussing on the socio-political problems that emanate from Western states’ harsh deterrence policies in their responses to refugee crises, this book draws on research undertaken over the past 10 years, and uses Australia’s own refugee and asylum seeker policies as a lens to examine the ways in which isolated and separatist reactions not only deny protection and basic human rights for asylum seekers but also do nothing to address structurally enduring push factors.
This book focuses on historical and current data to examine racism in Australia. Making use of the latest state and federal data sets, and drawing on research data from other countries to draw comparative insights, it critically synthesises contemporary research on race relations with a focus on racism and anti-racism initiatives, and identifies possible lessons and policy implications for Australia.

This book shines a light on the issues of governance, rights and the injustices that are meted out to an ever growing and vulnerable sector of the global migrant community – women.

With contributions from Loretta Baldassar, Sara E. Davies, Ismet Fanany, Rebecca Fanany, Neila Hyndman-Rizk and Nana Oishi.

Multiculturalism is now seen by many of its critics as the source of intercultural and social tensions, fostering communal segregation and social conflicts. While the cultural diversity of contemporary societies has to be acknowledged as an empirical and demographic fact, whether multiculturalism as a policy offers an optimal conduit for intercultural understanding and social harmony has become increasingly a matter of polarised public debate. This book examines the contested philosophical foundations of multiculturalism and its often controversial applications in the context of migrant societies, covering ethical challenges and policy dilemmas surrounding the management of cultural diversity in our contemporary societies, including case studies from Australia, Canada, Columbia, Germany, New Zealand, the United Kingdom and Uruguay.
