Borders Politics: In Whose Interests?
4pm-6pm, 15 August 2015
Where: Alliance Francaise, 66 McCaughey St, Turner, ACT 2612
Cost: $10 waged, $5 unwaged
Australia is expending vast amounts of money and effort to strengthen our borders against migrants and asylum-seekers, but dismantling them in the name of free trade. We invoke borders in the name of security but leave them porous to corporations. Borders are meaningless to pollution but definitive when it comes to action to tackle climate change. Who’s in and who’s out? Who decides? Who benefits? Why are our borders playing such a pivotal role in today’s politics?
If you’re in or around Canberra, join us for a drink and a Green Agenda discussion on border politics.
Speakers: Jasmina Brankovich (by internet from Perth), Kyla Tienhaara, Josh Wyndham-Kidd and you, the audience.
About the speakers:
Dr Jasmina Brankovich is a Perth-based historian, writer, community organiser and activist. Her interest in border politics relates to her research into the relationships between gender, class and race and their theoretical intersections with teh state. She is writing a soon-to-be-published Green Agenda essay on asylum seekers, human rights and border protection.
Dr Kyla Tienhaara is an ANU researcher whose main interest is the intersection between environmental governance and the global economic system, including the history of investor-state disputes under ‘free trade’ agreements.
Josh Wyndham-Kidd has just completed a master of national security policy at ANU and is the Australian Greens International Secretary and ACT Greens Co-Convener.
