Ann Farrell, Professor and Head of the School of Early Childhood, Faculty of Education, Queensland University of Technology, Brisbane, Australia.

The last decade has seen major flows of people between the Global South and Global North, such that transnational displacement of children has become a feature of the new global order. Estimates say more than 25 million children currently face dislocation due to political or natural disaster. This may be due to being voluntary migrants, refugees and/or asylum seekers whose pre-migration history may well include severe trauma.
Australia claims to be a resettlement nation, yet its policies and practices fly in the face of children’s human rights to provision of education and health care and protection from harm and danger. This seminar provides an analysis of Australia’s policies and practices alongside its claim to provide for children’s human rights to protection and provision.
