Refugees - Children Down Under

Last year, Australia’s Human Rights Commission released a report titled, “The Forgotten Children”. It was a national inquiry into children in immigration detention camps. Recently, Australia’s Prime Minister, Tony Abbott attacked the Human Rights Commission’s president, Gillian Triggs, claiming that the report was a “blatantly partisan, politicised exercise”. We speak to an anthropologist from the University of Queensland to find out the situation at the refugee detention camps and to contextualise this heated controversy.

Melanie Abraham contributed to this report.
