Building a New Life in Australia: The Longitudinal Study of Humanitarian Migrants
Building a New Life in Australia is a large longitudinal study that examines how humanitarian migrants settle into a new life in Australia.
About the project
Australia has a long tradition of welcoming humanitarian migrants. Forced to leave their homes and country, many have suffered significant trauma and are unfamiliar with the language and culture of Australia. Understanding how humanitarian migrants settle into Australia is critical to the development of effective policy and program responses.
