Description

With ever-hardening borders and widening economic inequality, Australia has come face to face with the greatest migrant and refugee crisis since WW2. Kon shares his experience of working with the Asylum Seeker Resource Centre, showing how innovative and holistic approaches to human mobility can shift the paradigm of immigration from a burden to a humanitarian and entrepreneurial opportunity. Does seizing the social and cultural capital that immigration brings create a better way forward for asylum seekers in Australia?
