57: Kinship And Refugees

EPISODE: 57

Kinship And Refugees

with Michael Jensen and Megan Powell du Toit

In the wake of Refugee Week, the With All Due Respect team tackle our national responsibility towards the stateless with some international input.

In the wake of Refugee Week, Michael Jensen and Megan Powell du Toit talk to Regent College’s Mark Glanville about the book he has co-written with his brother, Refuge Reimagined: Biblical Kinship in Global Politics.

Mark Glanville brings the biblical scholarship of a respected theologian, while his brother Luke adds the insight of an associate professor in the Department of International Relations at Australian National University.

Then the WADR team examines Australia’s attitude to refugees and how it mirrors an international approach that is increasingly overshadowed by concerns about personal and national security, economics, and culture.

Finally, it’s time to examine the new television series Stateless, and how Australian actor Cate Blanchett interprets life in an immigration detention center.

WHAT IS WITH ALL DUE RESPECT?

Less aggro, more conversation.

Is it even possible to have a deep discussion without it descending into chaos? Michael Jensen and Megan Powell du Toit think yes, and want to show the rest of us how to do it.

There’s plenty of things they disagree on: free will, feminism, where you should send your kids to school and what type of church you should go to. But there are also plenty of other things that they have in common. They want to talk about all these things with conviction. But they also want the conversation to be constructive. Tune in to find out if that’s possible.
