Anywhere but here : locating the border and narrating asylum seekers under Australia's policy of territorial excision : a thesis submitted to McGill University in partial fulfillment of the requirements of the degree of /

by Vogl, Anthea.

Publisher: unpub. 2010Description: PDF.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: November 2010 Bibliography : p. 131-137Summary: This thesis argues that the securitization of migration is a discourse that has gained a near monopoly over how the physical spaces of the territorial border are imagined and how the border itself is understood as a site of exclusion and control. Narratives about who undocumented people are and why they arrive at the border play a central role in justifying the anxious regulation of the border and migration as a national security issue. Taking Australia's policy of territorial excision as a representative instance of border policy that is dictated and defined by the securitization of migration, this thesis traces the various and over-determined narratives of the territorial border and the undocumented person that were articulated in the parliamentary debates surrounding this policy. It argues against securitization's constructions of these subjects, to show that neither the border nor the undocumented migrant exist independently of the narratives that constitute them. These narratives work not only to justify the exclusion of undocumented people at the border as sensible and legitimate, but also actively obscure and discredit other ways of imagining people who arrive at the border, as well as the functions and spaces of territorial borders.Availability: (1)

Australian Code for the Responsible Conduct of Research

by National Health and Medical Research Council (Australia) | Australian Research Council | Universities Australia.

Publisher: Canberra, A.C.T. National Health and Medical Research Council 2018Description: [10 p.].Other title: Australian Code for Responsible Conduct of Research.Online Access: Electronic copy | NHMRC Website Summary: The Australian and international community expects research to be conducted responsibly, ethically and with integrity. The Australian Code for the Responsible Conduct of Research (the Code) articulates the broad principles that characterise an honest, ethical and conscientious research culture. It establishes a framework for responsible research conduct that provides a foundation for high-quality research, credibility and community trust in the research endeavour. It outlines the expectations for the conduct of research in Australia or research conducted under the auspices of Australian institutions. The primary responsibility for ensuring the integrity of research lies with individual researchers and institutions. The Code sets out principles and responsibilities that both researchers and institutions are expected to follow when conducting research. Critical to this endeavour are the moral leadership and espoused values of the institution and the shared values and expectations of honesty and integrity that characterise an institution’s leadership and culture. The previous version of the Code has served as an important point of reference to researchers and administrators. In addition, its widespread adoption has provided the Australian community, and those responsible for funding research, with greater confidence in the integrity of research. This updated version of the Code has the same goal, but is presented in a simpler way that more clearly articulates the high-level principles, responsibilities and expectations that apply to all research across all disciplines.
