About the Authors
  • Fundamentally concerned with the choices that a nation makes regarding the people to allow into its community and share its resources, this volume 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 analyzes the policy and moral considerations of this area of law, especially in relation to refugee law, which is one of the most divisive social issues of our time. It suggests proposals for change and how this area of law can be made more coherent and principled.

    • A detailed look at the migration and refugee law in Australia
    • Essential for all those interested in comparative migration law
    • A useful explanation of the various visas necessary to enter Australia
