'Humanitarian borderwork': Tensions between humanitarianism and securitization for NGOs working with asylum seekers in Australia

Research output: Contribution to Newspaper/Magazine/BulletinArticle

Abstract

What is humanitarianism? What happens when non-governmental organisations (NGOs) take on lucrative government contracts to provide services to asylum seekers? How does this ‘humanitarian borderwork’, defined as practices that contain a security logic that construct, shift and erase internal and external borders, differ from the work of NGOs in the criminal justice system or the immigration detention system?
