Syrian Refugees in Jordan

Thu 11 May 2017

After seven years of war, Syria’s closest neighbours continue to bear the brunt of the refugee crisis the conflict has spawned. Jordan, to the south, now hosts over 600,000 refugees that have fled Syria. Zaatari, one of the world’s largest refugee camps, houses 80,000 of them.

Diasporas in Action

Thu 02 Feb 2017

We belong to a world of people on the move - in 2015, 244 million people lived outside their country of origin, including 20 million refugees.

But they can also be conflicted and conservative, bringing with them the conflicts ...

Australia’s role in the world

Sat 01 May 2010

In an era characterised by globalisation, protracted civil wars, new security challenges, food and economic crises, and environmental challenges, the role Australia plays in the world has changed dramatically from in the past. Australia’s response to the myriad issues currently facing the international community raises numerous questions about the role it should play on the world stage, and the role it does play.
