'I had to do something. I couldn't do nothing!': citizen action in support of asylum seekers in Australia 2001-2006 : thesis submitted in fulfilment of the requirements for the /

by Gosden, Diane | University of New South Wales. Faculty of Arts and Social ciences. School of Social Sciences.

Publisher: Thesis 2012Description: PDF.Notes: Includes bibliographical referencesSummary: This thesis is an examination of social action opposed to particular Australian government policies. The policies concerned are those affecting people seeking asylum without authorised entry documents. The period examined is from 2001 to 2006. It is argued that the social action contributed to the achievement of shifts in public opinion and policy during this period. The context in which this local action is examined is the international system of asylum, and the responses of developed countries to flows of incoming asylum seekers. Political rhetoric has often demonised those seeking asylum, and the term 'asylum seeker' increasingly has negative connotations for many people in developed countries. At the same time, groups of people in asylum destination countries such as Australia, have also responded with support and assistance for asylum seekers.Availability: No items available
