    The Ethics of Discharging Asylum Seekers to Harm: A Case From Australia.Ryan Essex & David Isaacs - 2018 - Journal of Bioethical Inquiry 15 (1):39-44.
    In February 2016 a twelve-month-old asylum seeker, who came to be know as Baby Asha, was transferred from Nauru and hospitalized in Brisbane. This case came to public attention after Doctors refused to discharge Asha as she would have been returned to detention on Nauru. What in other circumstances would have been considered routine clinical care, quickly turned into an act of civil disobedience. This paper will discuss the ethical aspects of this case, along with its implications for clinicians and (...)

    Human Rights, Dual Loyalties, and Clinical Independence.Ryan Essex - 2014 - Journal of Bioethical Inquiry 11 (1):75-83.
    Although Australia has comparatively few individuals seeking asylum, it has had a mandatory detention policy in place since 1992. This policy has been maintained by successive governments despite the overwhelmingly negative impact mandatory detention has on mental health. For mental health professionals working in this environment, a number of moral, ethical, and human rights issues are raised. These issues are discussed here, with a focus on dual loyalty conflicts and drawing on personal experience, the bioethics and human rights literature, and (...)

    Should Clinicians Boycott Australian Immigration Detention?Ryan Essex - 2019 - Journal of Medical Ethics 45 (2):79-83.
    Australian immigration detention has been called state sanctioned abuse, cruel and degrading and likened to torture. Clinicians have long worked both within the system providing healthcare and outside of it advocating for broader social and political change. It has now been over 25 years and little, if anything, has changed. The government has continued to consolidate power to enforce these policies and has continued to attempt to silence dissent. It was in this context that a boycott was raised as a (...)

    Do Codes of Ethics and Position Statements Help Guide Ethical Decision Making in Australian Immigration Detention Centres?Ryan Essex - 2019 - BMC Medical Ethics 20 (1):1-9.
    Australian immigration detention has been called state sanctioned abuse and a crime against humanity. The Australian healthcare community has been closely involved with these policies, calling for their reform and working within detention centres to provide healthcare. As well as having a devastating impact on health, immigration detention changes the scope and nature of healthcare, with its delivery described as a Sisyphean task. In this article I will explore the guidance that is available to clinicians who work within detention centres (...)
