Malta's 'push back' stand-off: what can Australia learn?

Research output: Contribution to Newspaper/Magazine/BulletinEditorial

Abstract

Malta has become the latest country to try to “push back” asylum seekers, implementing a policy similar to that being advocated by the Coalition as its “Real Solution” to the phenomenon of boats arriving on Australian shores.

In policies reminiscent of Australia, the Maltese government is scrambling to appear tough on migration and depict the arrival of asylum seekers as a crisis that warrants a security response.
