Boat arrivals in Australia since 1976 /

by Phillips, Janet | Australia. Department of Parliamentary Services. arliamentary Library | Spinks, Harriet.

Publisher: Canberra, A.C.T. Department of Parliamentary Services. Parliamentary Library 2013Description: PDF.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: Stastical appendix updated 23 July 2013Summary: The term 'boat people' entered the Australian vernacular in the 1970s with the arrival of the first wave of boats carrying people seeking asylum from the aftermath of the Vietnam War. Over half the Vietnamese population was displaced in these years and, while most fled to neighbouring Asian countries, some embarked on the voyage by boat to Australia. ; The first boat arrived in Darwin in April 1976 carrying five Indochinese men. Over the next five years there were 2059 Vietnamese boat arrivals with the last arriving in August 1981. The arrival of 27 Indochinese asylum seekers in November 1989 heralded the beginning of the second wave. Over the following nine years, boats arrived at the rate of about 300 people per annum?mostly from Cambodia, Vietnam and southern China. In 1999, a third wave of asylum seekers, predominantly from the Middle East, began to arrive?often in larger numbers than previous arrivals and usually with the assistance of 'people smugglers'. ; This background note provides a brief overview of the historical and political context surrounding boat arrivals in Australia since 1976. It includes background on the global context; government policy responses; trends in public opinion on the issues; and links to some of the key resources. This publication also includes boat arrival figures drawn from available sources, including media reports, ministerial press releases and figures supplied by the Department of Immigration and Citizenship (DIAC). It is envisaged that the boat arrival figures in Appendix A will be updated on a regular basis.Availability: (1)

Human rights overboard : seeking asylum in Australia. /

by Briskman, Linda | Goddard, Chris.

Publisher: Carlton North, Vic. Scribe Publishing 2008Description: 448 p.Summary: "In 2005, in the wake of the Cornelia Rau scandal, a citizen's inquiry was established to bear witness to events in Australian immigration-detention facilities. Until then, the federal government had refused to conduct a broad-ranging investigation into immigration detention in Australia, and the operations within detention centres had been largely shrouded in official secrecy. The People's Inquiry into Detention (as it came to be called) heard heartbreaking evidence about asylum-seekers journeys to Australia, their detention process, life in detention, and life after detention. In total, around 200 people testified to the inquiry, and a similar number of written submissions were received. Human Rights Overboard draws together, for the first time, the oral testimony and written submissions from the inquiry in a powerful and vital book that stands as an indelible record of one of Australia's bleakest legacies. Clearly and comprehensively presented, the book is a haunting journey guided by voices from every side of the fence: former immigration detainees, refugee advocates, lawyers, doctors, psychiatrists, and former detention and immigration staff. Together, their stories bear testimony to a humanitarian disaster that Australia caused, and that must be remembered so that it never happens again. With a foreword by prominent humanitarian lawyer Julian Burnside, Human Rights Overboard is an essential book that will resonate with the Australian public and, indeed, the world, for years to come." -- Publisher websiteAvailability: Items available for loan: Brotherhood of St Laurence (1).

Report of the Expert Panel on Asylum Seekers /

by Houston, Angus | Australia. Expert Panel on Asylum Seekers | Aristotle, Paris | L'Estrange, Michael.

Publisher: Canberra, A.C.T. Expert Panel on Asylum Seekers 2012Description: PDF.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: August 2012Summary: This Report has been compiled over a six week period. In this time we have consulted widely on asylum issues with political leaders, other members of the Parliament, agencies and departments of government, non-government organisations (NGO s), academics and other experts as well as those in the wider community. We have also held discussions with representatives of some refugee communities in Australia and refugees who travelled to Australia more recently through irregular means. Our consultations have been conducted in many meetings and through the more than 550 written submissions that we have received. In all these processes, we have encountered a broad cross section of views on asylum issues and on the direction that Australian policymaking should take. Those views are deeply held and have been strongly argued.Availability: (1)
