Associate Professor Caroline Fleay and Dr Lisa Hartley, the Co-Directors of Curtin’s Centre for Human Rights Education, join Jess and Amelia to discuss why the right to move is so important, how COVID-19 lockdowns have restricted our ability to to move and how this right is often unequally experienced.

The group discuss rights to freedom of movement, the future of asylum seekers in Australia, as well as the motivations behind the researchers decisions to work in this field.
