Highlights from the Guardian workshop and panel on asylum at the 2016 Festival of Dangerous Ideas.
With David Marr as host, a panel of experts on international law, domestic policy and global forced migration discussed alternative policy perspectives.
The forum separated into groups to explore and test these ideas. Each group then presented its key policy proposal and suggested ways to implement it.
Among the panellists were the director of the Kaldor Centre for International Law, Prof Jane McAdam, the director of legal advocacy at the Human Rights Law Centre, Daniel Webb, University of Essex professor Geoff Gilbert and Refugee Council of Australia policy assistant Shukufa Tahiri.

    I honestly think the best way to solve the asylum seekers crisis in Australia is to get rid of the government like they did in Spain: https://stuartjeannebramhall.com/2016/10/14/spain-doing-fine-theres-no-government-like-no-government/

      Isn’t the problem, Stuart, that you cannot have a ‘caretaker government’ for ever and ever. That means, people may have to vote again and again until there is a result that enables someone to form a government.

    Watch 4 corners tonight. It promises to be a game changer for the refugees on Nauru. It can’t go on forever.
