Essay from the year 2016 in the subject Politics - International Politics - Topic: Public International Law and Human Rights, grade: A, Macquarie University, course: Law, language: English, abstract: Immigration detention in Australia is a contentious and complex issue that cannot simply be analysed on the basis of moralities or politics.

The discussion that follows addresses both the issues of physical conditions in VIDC and justifications for indefinite detention.
