As displacement reaches record levels, governments globally are seeking to deter, not welcome, asylum seekers.

This panel discussion examines how policymakers adopt and adapt policies such as detention, extraterritorial processing and turning back boats. AIIA's Melissa Conley Tyler; Dr Daniel Ghezelbash (Macquarie University); and Guy Goodwin-Gill (Kaldor Centre for International Refugee Law) analyse how these policies play out in Australia, US, Europe and the region, with moderator Leanne Smith.
