Australia’s treatment of asylum seekers continues to be debated across the country, from top levels of government, to the living room. Returning for its third season, the award-winning series Go Back to Where You Came From is as timely as ever. The series will once again provoke national debate about how Australia responds to refugees.

In the spirit of the series, prominent Australians with an interest in the topic will take over the SBS Twitter account. Twitter continues to be an important way Australians engage across broad, national topics every day.


Some of the participants include:


Dr. Munjed al Muderis

Dr. Munjed al Muderis is a pioneering orthopaedic surgeon who is giving amputees the ability to walk. He fled persecution in Iraq and arrived by boat to seek asylum in Australia.


Imogen Bailey

Imogen Bailey is an Australian model, actress and singer. She was a participant in last season’s Go Back to Where You Came From with a number of other high profile Australians.


Dr. David Corlett

Dr. David Corlett has worked with refugees and asylum seekers for two decades as a case worker, researcher and advisor. He is also the host of Go Back to Where You Came From.
