Melbourne: Refugees: A New Way
12 October 2016 @ 7:30 am - 8:30 am
Refugees: A New Way
For years, Australia’s refugee policy has staggered between two appalling problems: asylum seekers getting on leaky boats and dying at sea, and the calculatedly callous and cruel approach of successive governments, leaving refugees to die slowly in offshore detention centres, all hope deliberately removed. Is there a way through this impasse?
Both Tim Costello, World Vision chief and Christian activist, and Philip Freier, Anglican Primate of Australia, believe that there is. They believe asylum seekers can be treated more justly without encouraging people smugglers. The conversation will be moderated by ABC Radio’s John Cleary.
