Abstract

This book highlights the diversity inherent in the concept of sanctuary. It can be understood in terms that are individual and societal, cultural and environmental, historical and contemporary, local and global, religious and secular, European, Asian and more. The cases of Ahmed Zaoui and Mohamed Haneef would become causes célèbres in the countries of New Zealand and Australia respectively. I have written in more detail about the Zaoui case elsewhere (Brown 2010), but a comparison of the two cases is particularly instructive about the relationship between Islam and the West, the fear of Islamic fundamentalism and the institutionalization of Islamophobia. It was these phenomena that led Zaoui and Haneef to seek sanctuary. Zaoui sought sanctuary in New Zealand after failed attempts to seek sanctuary in Belgium, Switzerland, Burkina Faso and Malaysia, while Haneef, arguably, sought sanctuary from Australia due to its institutional Islamophobia.
