I was thrilled to see that Right Now has recently published a very positive review of my book linking it to the on-going debate about refugees and asylum seekers in Australia. Even though the book was published in November last year, these human stories continue to be lived and repeated over and over again, every day, in most parts of the world.
Right Now is a volunteer, not-for-profit media organisation that focuses on human rights issues in Australia. It bases its work around the belief that creating a positive, rights-respecting culture in Australia begins with the flow of information. I particularly like and relate to their vision: An Australia where people have informed and inspired discussions about human rights, equality and justice. Right Now’s work is vitally important and it is well worth following if you have an interest in human rights.
Here are some extracts of the review:
“More to the Story: Conversations with Refugees is a vital contribution to understanding the complex tapestry of the human experience that refugees bring with them when they embark on their journeys and settle in their new countries.”
“More to the Story: Conversations with Refugees expertly weaves together not only conversations with refugees but the historical and socio-political backdrops that have forced them to flee their countries for shelter in Australia. As Australia’s treatment of refugees and asylum seekers increasingly becomes a political and moral issue, it is well worth reading this book to hear authentic voices.”
