Abstract: After the 9 11 attacks, the treatment of asylum seekers as a security threat increased significantly. Australia is an example of a country that sees asylum seekers as a threat to its national sovereignty, which further exacerbates a new dimension of the securitization of asylum seekers in the country. This securitization eventually led to a series of border security plans, and the sovereign border operation (OSB) is the latest one. This paper discusses OSB policy from the perspective of the basic principles of OSB policy implementation. The article states that, contrary to the mandate of the OSB, the detention and return of asylum seekers represent the risks faced by asylum seekersed to. The article therefore calls for a more accommodating approach in the treatment of asylum seekers in Australia.
