To Deter and Deny: Australia and the Interdiction of Asylum Seekers
Keywords:Australia, border protection, asylum policy, interdiction, asylum seekers, refugees, people smuggling
AbstractThe paper provides an overview of the development and implementation of Australia’s comprehensive ‘border protection’ policy, including the Pacific Solution and Operation Relex – the interdiction of asylum seekers. The intention of the paper is to demonstrate the lengths to which a developed state will go in addressing the interrelated problems of secondary movement, people smuggling and mixed flows. It also highlights the ‘export value’ of the policy and its wider implications.
