On Monday the 1st of July, 2013, RRAN hosted a forum to discuss the highly contentious policy of mandatory detention in Australia;
for those who weren’t able to make it to last night’s forum, the video of it is now available.
The speakers included Assad Khurrami, a former detainee of Curtin IDC currently employed in supporting refugees in Perth; and Sarah Ross and Cindy Nancarrow, refugee advocates with RRAN, regular visitors in detention and both studying in related areas at Murdoch and QUT university respectively.
The forum explored contemporary policy implications and the impact on asylum seekers in detention, and was followed by a short Q&A session.
