Is Australia doing enough for Afghan refugees?

In conversation with Diana Sayed

The Taliban has taken control of the country, and more than 125,000 people have been evacuated in the last two weeks.

The Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison has committed to resettling 3000 Afghans, but allies like the UK, the US and Canada have committed to take 20,000 each. In fact, on the 19th of August, an Australian Defence Force aircraft that had the capacity to take 128 people left Kabul with more than 100 empty seats.

Today, we have Diana Sayed, the Chief Executive Officer of the Australian Muslim Women’s Centre for Human Rights. We talk about Australia’s role in resettling Afghan refugees, its place in the world as an asylum friendly country and the Afghan-Australian diaspora.
