    University of Sydney
    Chan, A Kerridge, I

    I am often asked questions about my work as a general practitioner in the Christmas Island and Nauru immigration detention centres. Are the conditions as bad as they say? Is the health care adequate? Are they genuine refugees? What are the people like? I often don’t know what to say, and wonder whether my answers are ever sufficient. Words often seem inadequate to describe what I saw, or the ways…

But while laws provide us with a point of departure, a thorough analysis of how these laws are upheld in the refugee context requires a foc…

    09 Jan 2020
    University of Sydney
    Gorman-Murray, Andrew Morris, Sally Keppel, Jessica McKinnon, Scott Dominey-Howes, Dale T.M.

    Vulnerability to disasters is not inherent to particular social groups but results from existing marginality. Marginalisation from social, political and economic resources and recognition underpins vulnerability and impedes recovery. Yet concurrently, disasters can reveal the resilient capacities of some marginal groups, who often develop specific means of coping with marginality. This article ap…
