Resilience, Refugees and the Rights of Children — An Immorality Play
Abstract:This article discusses the legitimacy of migration laws and judicial processes that do not protect the rights of children, especially asylum-seeking detainees, as they did not protect indigenous children's rights not to be separated from their culture and families, creating generations of traumatised families and children. The author advocates an Australian human rights regime is required in a civilised society.
