Children and Young People in Asylum and Refugee Processes: Towards Best Practice

Crock, M., Bones, K., Ghezelbash, D., Hollonds, J. and Kenny, M.A. (eds.)ORCID: 0000-0002-5352-7549 (2020) Children and Young People in Asylum and Refugee Processes: Towards Best Practice. The Federation Press, Alexandria, NSW, Australia.


Representing children in refugee protection proceedings is complex work involving legal, psycho-social, welfare and cross-cultural issues. Children and young people are amongst the most vulnerable people affected by migration controls, especially when they are seeking asylum alone, without the support of a responsible adult. Their interaction with government systems in this area is known to cause them high levels of stress and anxiety.

This important book is designed to assist migration agents, lawyers, social workers and other relevant professionals to effectively represent the rights and interests of migrant children and young people seeking protection in Australia. It covers both the law and policy and cultural competence and practices. It provides practical tools and suggestions about issues that commonly arise when assisting young non-citizens who apply for protection or other status in Australia.
