Unlawful migrant labour in Australia: new findings released

Marie Segrave’s current ARC DECRA research is investigating issues related to unlawful migrant workers, exploitation and regulation in Australia. The interim report – Exploited and Illegal: Unlawful migrant workers in Australia  – seeks to draw attention to the experiences of unlawful migrant work in Australia; to debunk some key myths around this population; and to raise a challenge to policy makers and legislators to look towards a future that will enable impact labour reform to be achieved – reform that will reduce the levels of exploitation and modern slavery occurring within Australia.
