Australia’s Treatment of Refugee Children

Posted on: Wed 27 Jun 2018

All eyes have been on America and outrage has sparked around the world at President Donald Trump’s border policy.

After much heat, Trump ended the separation of families, but his policy prompts us to think about what our Government is doing.

Australia has had a long and brutal history of detention of asylum seeker children, and it’s shocking that it is still happening.  

Associate Professor and Chair of the Victoria University Human Research Ethics Committee, Deborah Zoin says, ‘What people really need to do is not to forget that this is happening’.

Professor Zoin joins Breakfast’s Tom and Casey to speak more about Australia’s treatment of refugee children.
