In his work for the rights of Asylum Seekers and Refugees, Phil led the Edmund Rice Centre’s research team for the "Deported to Danger" series which monitored the safety of rejected asylum seekers in 22 countries, and resulted in an internationally screened documentary, “A Well Founded Fear”, in 2008. He was also a consultant on the 2012 TV series Go Back To Where You Came From.
