Refugee and asylum-seeking children and young people often feature in public discussion – particularly in the contexts of people’s treatment in detention by Australia, children and young people’s removal from their parents at the border by the US, and the dangerous journeys children and young people are taking in seeking safety in Europe. In this workshop we will consider some of the histories of the current moment, as we endeavour to understand what brought us here, and what role universities (and those who work in them) can play in developing new discourses, practices, and policies.

The event is part of the ARC Kathleen Fitzpatrick Laureate Fellowship Research Project on Children Refugees and Australian Internationalism. The event is free to attend but RSVP is required, for catering purposes, to jordys@unimelb.edu.au by Friday 19 October.
