Behrouz Boochani: Freedom, Only Freedom (2022 Wallace Wurth Lecture)


Join Kurdish-Iranian writer Behrouz Boochani live for his first ever visit to Australia, as he dismantles Australia’s cruel and inhumane refugee policy.

If it weren’t for the consecutive Australian government’s inhuman treatment of refugees; Behrouz Boochani wouldn’t be a household name. The Kurdish-Iranian journalist spent years languishing in offshore detention, during which time he witnessed those seeking asylum being exposed to conditions that violated international refugee law. In his first ever visit to Australia, Boochani will share his stories of resilience and shed light on the shameful refugee policies that the Australian government continues to endorse.
