In part 7 of Temporary we meet Hani. Back in 2013, with Operation Sovereign Borders, the Australian government launched an outright war on asylum seekers, condemning 30,000 people seeking safety to mandatory detention and temporary protection, leaving thousands of people like Hani, a young poet from Somalia, caught in the middle. Years after the harsh deterrence policies were implemented, we ask: have they actually worked?
Temporary is a project from the University of New South Wales Centre for Ideas and Kaldor Centre for International Refugee Law in partnership with Guardian Australia, inspired by the book Refugee Rights and Policy Wrongs by Jane McAdam and Fiona Chong. Series artwork by Matt Huynh.
You can find additional information, photography and artwork at the Kaldor Centre’s Temporary website.
