About Professor Mary Crock

Mary's main field of research is migration, citizenship and refugee law. However, she has general interests in administrative law and international human rights law as well as in related fields of public law such as constitutional law and public international law.

Her specific research interests range from studies of the interaction between Parliament and the judiciary to the legal rights of migrants and refugees in general and of child migrants in particular. She is known for her work on immigration detention, but has also written and lectured on many other aspects of immigration and refugee law and their interface with other areas of law and other disciplines.

The most recent foci of her research has been twofold. In 2006 she published the results of her research into child migrants and asylum seekers (as author of two reports and advisor in two others), as well as a general text on refugees and irregular migrants. In 2007 she has continued work on a second edition of her text on Immigration and Refugee Law (Federation Press, 1998), and will be completing an historical and cultural study on the impact that migrants have had on the development of public law in Australia.
