In the wake of the Christchurch massacre, Jacinda Ardern’s compassionate proclamation “you are us” stood in stark contrast to the commonly hostile rhetoric surrounding Muslims, making a strongly inclusive statement of national character. Former foreign correspondent and author, Ben Doherty, joins with Alice Pung, Arnold Zable and Amal Awad to discuss migrant and refugee narratives, the urgent need for an inclusive vision of who we are, and how writers and storytellers can contribute to that reality.
