Abstract

In 1979 the ‘Boat People’ reached the headlines in newspapers around the world. Their flight caught the imaginations of the media and was to affect the Western world as these refugees joined the procession of refugees who had sought asylum since the Second World War. The media image, which was based on South Vietnamese refugees in small boats, was not representative of all the refugees, particularly not those from the North.
