Migration and refugee law and policy is fundamentally concerned with the choices that we as a nation make regarding the people that we want to allow into our community and share our resources. Migration and Refugee Law: Principles and Practices in Australia provides an overview of the legal principles governing the entry of people into Australia. As well as dealing with migration and refugee law today, the book analyses the policy and moral considerations underpinning this area of law. This is especially so in relation to refugee law, which is one of the most divisive social issues of our time. The book suggests proposals for change and how this area of law can be made more coherent and principled. This book is written for all people who have an interest in migration and refugee law, including judicial officers, migration agents and lawyers, and students.
