Robert Manne Sending Them Home

In Sending Them Home, Robert Manne tells the stories of individual asylum seekers and finds in their experience the seeds of a devastating critique. Balancing sorrow and pity with a controlled anger, Manne develops a sustained argument about what could, and should, be done for the nine thousand refugees who remain in limbo on temporary protection visas. 

Sending Them Home also contains a groundbreaking account of conditions in the offshore processing camps on Nauru, whose operations have until now been shrouded in secrecy, and a damning forensic investigation of the recent efforts to return – frequently against their will – many of those who sought our protection and whose countries remain in turmoil.

Combining ethical reflection and acute political analysis, this essay initiates a new phase in the refugee debate.
