Australia’s conversation on asylum seekers

Watch the video here
“Go Back To Where You Came From” is a brave and powerful series broadcast on Australian TV. The show takes participants on a three-week journey to Afghanistan and Somalia, retracing the journeys undertaken by thousands of asylum seekers each year.

It’s refreshing to see that despite the country’s harsh policy on asylum seekers there is still space for issues surrounding refugees, asylum seekers and immigration policy to be discussed in a high-profile, mainstream setting. It would be very interesting to see a UK version of the show!
