What is a refugee?

Refugee, asylum seeker, illegal immigrants: these are terms that are used in different ways, often confusing issues that are emotional and legally contentious.

William Maley, author of What is a Refugee? talks to Kon Karapanagiotidis, director of the Asylum Seekers Resource Centre, about definitions, history, emotions, ethics and people, and what we can do to make sure we understand the legal conventions behind the political and social debate.
