CORE ISSUES

  • Asylum seekers and refugees

    The rights and wellbeing of people seeking asylum on our shores have been trademark concerns for the magazine since its first issue in 1991. Prominent human rights lawyers, migration lawyers and advocates write regularly, capturing the human, ethical and policy dimensions of this complex issue.

  • Aboriginal & Torres Strait Islanders

    The Jesuits, publishers of Eureka Street, have a long history of living and working alongside ATSI Australians in remote communities. This concern and advocacy grounded in human relationships is today carried into the pages of Eureka Street by expert writers of both white and Aboriginal heritage.

  • Climate change & the environment

    Eureka Street has an editorial mandate to promote good stewardship of our shared world. In particular it emphasises the impacts that climate change and environmental degradation have upon the world’s most marginalised citizens, with expert writers bringing ethical weight to bear on real-world policies.

  • Religion in the public square

    As a Catholic magazine with editorial independence, Eureka Street plays a vital role as a critical voice both from within and toward the Catholic Church. This is important during a time when all religious institutions in the Western world are facing significant challenges to their continued relevance and moral authority.
