The Plight of People Living with Disabilities within Australian Immigration Detention: Demonised, Detained and Disowned.

This paper focuses on the plight of people living with a disability detained in Australian run immigration detention centres, in both onshore and offshore facilities (including Christmas Island, Nauru and Manus Island). It does not examine the suitability of community based options such as Community Detention and release into community on a bridging visa for people living with disabilities.
