Migration law has been a very controversial area over the past twenty years. The global movement of people and the plight of refugees have led to a series of controls on people entering into, and remaining in, Australia. The legislation containing the rules have been changed many times and the courts have considered hundreds of cases. In Migration and Refugee Law in Australia: Cases and Commentary, the main principles of law are extracted and explained so that the law can be understood. The book analyses the policy and moral considerations underpinning migration law, and suggests an overarching framework for developing migration law and critiquing existing policies and practices. Migration and refugee law is also analysed through the lens of Australian and international human rights law and conventions. Immigration is expected to be one of the most important issues facing Australia this century. Informed debate will produce outcomes.
