Doing Our Bit: The Campaign to Double the Refugee Quota.

  • Ruby O'Connor


Over the past few decades the world has seen a large increase in the number of people seeking asylum. The reactions from Western nations have been varied and the question of responsibility is of social and political significance.  When Murdoch Stephens began his campaign in 2013, New Zealand had not increased its refugee quota in 30 years, and amidst this global refugee crisis, their intake figures were poor by international comparison. In Doing Our Bit – The Campaign to Double the Refugee Quota, Murdoch Stephens reviews his campaign, and issues the challenge that New Zealand is not just a passive spectator in the refugee crisis.
