Reconcile the conflict at source and there will be no need for boats

Professor Paul Komesaroff, Centre for Ethics in Medicine and Society, said we need a better approach to dealing with asylum seekers, namely, to stop the problem at source by reconciling the conflict causing the exodus in the first place. For us not to address this is morally and financially exorbitantly expensive.
In dollar terms alone, 'stopping the boats' will cost more than $8 billion a year - more than that of the national disability insurance scheme and the national broadband network combined.
