An ABC documentary on conditions in Australia’s offshore refugee processing centres on Nauru and Manus Island broadcast last night on the news programme, Four Corners, raises profound questions about Australia’s commitment to human rights protections. Entitled No Advantage: Inside Australia's Offshore Processing Centres, the documentary includes footage of detention conditions and interviews with former and current detainees, as well as interviews with staff members, revealing the human cost of border control in Australia.
