Former PM urges “generosity and effective diplomacy”

This document was received from the office of the former Liberal Prime Minister, following our publication of the submission by CPD Fellows John Menadue and Arja Keski-Nummi.

The submission points out that recent debates on asylum and refugee policy have, “revolved around two approaches that are not going to work”: Offshore processing in Nauru and Malaysia.

Protecting asylum seekers seems to have been lost from the current debate and it’s time to restore this protection as integral to our approach to asylum seekers.
