Navigating the Negative: Hearing the Anti-Asylum Perspective

Jacqueline Margaret Laughland-Booy, Zlatko Skrbis

Research output: Other contributionOtherpeer-review


Since 2010, we have been researching the attitudes of young Australians toward asylum seekers who attempt to reach Australia by boat (“boat people”). In this case study, we discuss our experiences of speaking to young people who advocate harsh exclusionary actions against “boat people”. We also consider the importance and necessity of the researcher’s need to remain reflexive about their role and purpose in collecting and reporting views they may find objectionable and personally confronting.
