July 2013 (archived post)

On 1 July I was at York University, talking about Border Country at a seminar called The Politics of Detention superbly organised by Alex Hall, lecturer in the Politics Department. When I started Border Country in 2003 I never imagined that the injustice of immigration detention would still be quite such a pressing issue ten years on. http://www.york.ac.uk/politics/news-events/events/2013/politics-detention/ The papers were really excellent, although the day was sobering.
