Recent issues of international student security in Australia, especially breaches of the personal safety of students from South Asia, raise far-reaching questions about the security of mobile persons in a world governed and regulated by bordered nation-states. States have a prima facie first obligation to their own citizens and are chronically unable to provide for universal humanism or even universalise protections for strangers. Given the growing number of mobile persons - whether students, economic travellers or refugees - it is increasingly apparent that a new multilateral or global regime is needed to provide for personal security.
