Resettling Visible Migrants & Refugees In Regional And Rural Victoria

Grant number: LP0883896 | Funding period: 2008 - 2013



Increasing numbers of visible migrants and refugees are settling in rural and regional Australia. Critical knowledge of how this is working is of national significance as it can improve cohesiveness, sustainability and quality of diverse communities and intergovernmental policies. By working directly with our industry partners in local and state government in Victoria, this project will provide concrete examples of good practice which will also be of benefit nationally. The project findings will have far-reaching implications for our understanding of migrant and refugee resettlement in Australia; and will consolidate Australia as an important site of international expertise.
