Tampering with Asylum: A Universal Humanitarian Problem

Year: 2003
By: Frank Brennan
ISBN: 0702235814

Frank Brennan wrote this book in response to the 2001 Tampa Affair, when the Norwegian freighter MV Tampa, and its cargo of rescued people seeking asylum, were denied permission to dock at the nearest landfall of Christmas Island.

The book compares Australia’s dramatic over-reaction with the response of the United States and Europe, and offers a practical blueprint for countries wanting to humanely protect people seeking asylum.
