Tasia Power

tasia-power-copyTasia Power is working on her PhD through Charles Sturt University, researching how Australia’s policies on the securitization of migration impact on the delivery of humanitarian aid in the Asia Pacific region.  

The research will examine a reshaping of humanitarianism, moving away from traditional forms of governance towards an integrated system that combines security policies and human rights to strategically direct welfare services and migration patterns. Particular attention will be given to unpacking sovereignty, securitization, humanitarianism and migration within four case study areas: Indonesia, Cambodia, Manus and Nauru. Her research will explore this through mixed methodology, balancing criminological and legislative analysis with the experiences of refugees and international welfare agencies.
