Abstract

The 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.
