APOLOGY AND CORRECTION

It has been brought to our attention by Monash University's Dr Nick Dyrenfurth that an article entitled ‘The facts about Australia's asylum seeker problem’, published by Independent Australia on 4 August 2012, and  written by a contributor, Jai Goulding, contained untenable similarities to an article entitled ‘Why the moralising left is losing the refugee debate’, written by Dr Dyrenfurth and published in The Age on June 23, 2012.

We have compared both articles and agree with Dr Dyrenfurth that the Goulding article uses large parts of Dr Dyrenfurth’s work without proper attribution.

We understand how disappointing this must be to Dr Dyrenfurth as, indeed, it is to us.

We have removed the offending article from the website.

We accepted the submitted text of the contributor in good faith.

We apologise without reservation to Dr Dyrenfurth.

Given the topic of asylum seekers is one that we actively discuss and debate on IA, we hope that we can persuade Dr Dyrenfurth to contribute his own article on the subject.
