Australian Progress and the Asylum Seeker Resource Centre (ASRC) invite you to hear from our Expert-In-Residence Anat Shenker-Osorio and Australian researchers about the full findings of extraordinary new research into the words that work for talking about people seeking asylum.

Anat is a renowned US messaging expert and cognitive linguist who has been working with the ASRC on groundbreaking new research into how we could shift the national debate about people seeking asylum.

Despite many Australians from all walks of life arguing for more humane treatment of people seeking asylum, bipartisan policy has moved in the other direction and broader community attitudes continue to harden.

It is clear that humane and lasting policy change will require changing how we make the case for it. This new research includes tested messages that could could reach much more of the community, and our political leaders, to kickstart a new, more hopeful national discussion.
