Human Rights Overb ard, Seeking Asylum In Australia.

Linda Briskman, Susie Latham, Chris Goddard. With a forward by Julian Burnside

In 2005, the the wake of the Cornelia RAu scandal, a citizen;s inquiry was established to bear witness to events in Australia's immigration-detention facilities.  Until then, the federal government had refused to conduct a broad-ranging investigation into immigration detention, and the operations within detention centres had been largely shrouded in official secrecy.

The People's inquiry into detention heard heartbreaking evidence about asylum seekers' journeys to Australia, the refugee determination process and their lives in and after detention.
