Project Description

Under conditions of globalisation, deportation of non-citizens is increasingly used by Australia and other
developed nations as a means of protecting the vital interests of domestic populations. This study will
investigate the use of deportation across four key domains: national security, community safety, workforce
protection and retention of international student markets. The legal framework for deportation is ambiguous
and complex and the broader impact of the practice remains largely unknown. This study will test our claim
that deportation has a significant impact on institutions, individuals and communities, and will contribute to a
more ethically and legally robust approach to deportation.
