“Australia is in a very dark place when it comes to asylum law and policy,” says Scientia Professor Jane McAdam.
As founding director of the new Andrew & Renata Kaldor Centre for International Refugee Law, McAdam is determined to return social justice and legal obligation to the asylum-seeker debate. The Centre, based in UNSW’s faculty of law, will enable high-quality research to inform public policy debate by connecting academics with the legal profession, policy makers and the public.
In our cover story, we talk to McAdam and the Centre’s donors who helped fund its establishment, Andrew and Renata Kaldor.
Also in our Summer issue, we investigate UNSW’s remarkable track record in producing millionaire graduate entrepreneurs and successful technology start-ups; we listen-in on a conversation between Chancellor David Gonski and Australia’s most generous philanthropist, Frank Lowy, about his family, his past and his motivations for giving; we look at the University’s programs promoting senior women; and we ask whether our attitudes to guns is stifling children’s imaginative play.
