Chapter Summary

This index presents terms and concepts relevant to discussion of social behavior and pattern of actions of 45,000 or so Chinese students as they strategized and fought to obtain their right and their chance to stay permanently in Australia after the Tiananmen incident of 1989. During this particular period, the Australian government introduced the most significant changes to its immigration administration since the end of World War II, especially with regard to its humanitarian and refugee immigration policies, aimed at controlling the increased numbers of illegal entrants and onshore asylum seekers, which included the Chinese students.
