Dangerous vulnerability, threatening victims: Scapegoating asylum seekers in twentyfirst-century Australia

    Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

    Abstract

    A dangerous and potent idea currently pervading public discourse is that refugees and asylum seekers pose a threat to Australian society. The gist of this widely promoted idea is that the victims themselves are dangerous. Connected with this idea is the notion that victims are morally suspect, manipulative, grasping, untrustworthy and a fiscal burden on the state.
