Project members

This project has been conceived, designed and built by a team from the University of Melbourne, with assistance from specialists in refugee studies and carceral history. Dr Claire Loughnan is the Chief Investigator and has coordinated the project in partnership with Dr Una McIlvenna.

The virtual reconstruction of the site has been created by UniMelb's eLearning team: Mitch Buzza, Sam Taylor, and Meredith Hinze. They were aided in this task by the generous assistance of the eyewitness testimony of former detainee Behrouz Boochani.

The project has benefited from the expertise of Dr Jordy Silverstein, Prof Uma Kothari, and Mahnaz Alimardanian.
