ARA Oration 2013


Celebrate Refugee Week 2013 with the Australian Refugee Association featuring Jon Jureidini, who will explore the topic “To be a decent citizen”.

What responsibility do citizens have towards those with whom they have no personal relationship? Does that responsibility vary according to the individual’s status, authority or wealth? To what extent do we have the right to put personal interest above the interests of others?

Be challenged by Jon’s thought-provoking oration.

Jon Jureidini is a child psychiatrist at the Adelaide Women’s and Children’s Hospital. Jon has a longstanding interest in refugee mental health. In his work assessing and treating asylum seekers for over a decade, he has witnessed the damaging effects of the toxic environment in immigration detention.
