Themes : multiculturalism successful social cohesion

Understanding the role that migrants and humanitarian entrants play in the broader Australian community is crucial to developing a proper understanding of their settlement journeys.

The focus of discussions around settlement is often on the economic integration of migrants in Australia; with respect to employment outcomes, education opportunities and socio-economic factors such as housing, transport and English Language training. However, settlement is a much bigger picture and each of these factors must be considered as building blocks. Each is an important foundation for successful settlement, but none can be considered individually to accurately gauge a recent arrival’s level of settlement in Australia
