Frontier Justice

Andy Lamey

Publisher:University of Queensland Press

Frontier Justice is a gripping exploration of the world-wide refugee crisis. Andy Lamey presents the story behind the radical increase in the global number of asylum seekers, set within the historical and philosophical context in which the ideas of asylum originated and evolved. Importantly, Lamey approaches the issue as a global one, presenting case studies from Australia, North America, and Europe. He follows the extraordinary efforts of a set of Yale law students who sued the US government on behalf of a group of refugees imprisoned at Guantanamo Bay; he recounts one refugee family's harrowing journey from Saddam Hussein's Iraq to contemporary Australia via the world's most dangerous ocean crossing; and he explores the fascinating case of Ahmed Ressam, the so-called Millennium bomber who filed a refugee claim in Canada before attempting to blow up the Los Angeles airport. Throughout Lamey's account, he focuses on the rights of people in search of asylum, and how those rights are routinely violated. But Frontier Justice does not merely point out problems.At the heart of the book is a new blueprint for how the rights of refugees might be enforced, and a vision of human rights that is ultimately optimistic and deeply affirmative.
