|Title:||A discussion of the recent excision of Christmas Island from Australia's migration zone in the light of Australia's international refugee obligation of non-refoulement||Contributor(s):||Della-Torre, Emilia Ida (author)||Publication Date:||2003||Handle Link:||https://hdl.handle.net/1959.11/1528||Abstract:||The Australian Government's 'Pacific Solution' which prohibits asylum seekers from entering Australia’s migration zone and applying for refugee status raises a number of legal issues. This article explores the extent to which the 'Pacific Solution' is consonant with Australia's international refugee obligation of non-refoulement. The international law of non-refoulement is detailed. It is then applied within the contemporary Australian context. This article concludes that the 'Pacific Solution' does not strictly violate Australia's obligation of non-refoulement towards asylum seekers.||Publication Type:||Journal Article||Source of Publication:||Australian Journal of Human Rights, 9(2), p. 123-137||Publisher:||LexisNexis Butterworths||Place of Publication:||Sydney, Australia||ISSN:||1323-238X||Field of Research (FOR):||180114 Human Rights Law||Peer Reviewed:||Yes||HERDC Category Description:||C1 Refereed Article in a Scholarly Journal||Other Links:||http://www.austlii.edu.au/au/journals/AJHR/2003/20.html
