  • The voices Australia should hear

    This beautifully illustrated hardback captures the stories of those who have lived the experience of seeking asylum.
    In their own voices, contributors share how they came to be in Australia, and explore diverse aspects of their lives- growing up in a refugee camp, studying for a PhD, changing attitudes through soccer, being a Muslim in a small country town, campaigning against racism, surviving detention, holding onto culture, dreaming of being reunited with family.

    There are stories of love, pain, injustice, achievement and everything in between. Accompanied by beautiful portrait photographs, they show the depth and diversity of people's experience and trace the impact of Australia's immigration policies.

    Seeking Asylum also includes a foreword by Liliana Maria and an essay by Abdul Karim Hekmat on the human, social and political impact of Australia's treatment of asylum seekers over the last fifty years. With an afterword by Kon Karapanagiotidis and supporting material demystifying Australia's current policies from Julian Burnside, Seeking Asylum redefines assumptions about people who have sought asylum and inspires readers to take action to create a more welcoming Australia.
