Sandra Bartlett presented Asylum Seekers – the human reality at Spearwood Library on 16 March 2015, in an effort to answer some of the questions and dispel some of the myths behind the complex and divisive issue of asylum seekers and refugees.

Sandra has not only carried out extensive academic research into the plight of those seeking asylum, but as a caseworker for asylum seekers living in Perth she knows firsthand some of the challenges faced by refugees coming to Australia.

The first half of the podcast  is Sandra’s presentation, while the second  half contains questions from the audience and some audience discussion.
