Arja Keski-NummiA comparison of immigration policies…

While both major parties pursue populist policies, whether either set will work is questionable.

CPD fellow Arja Keski-Nummi discusses the details and compares the party policies on immigration, with asylum seekers a major issue this election.

Bill Walter asks about regional cooperation where Arja points out that a regional solution is the only way to effectively address regional problems, and that Australia cannot do it working in isolation. There is also a risk that current government volatility will hurt our chances of cooperation with neighbouring countries.
