Launch of Settlement Cities

A place-based study of Australia's major centres for refugee resettlement




The Settlement Cities Report is a major new report on the settlement experiences of refugees in Australia. The report takes a place-based approach to refugee settlement, focusing on ‘Settlement Cities’ - the LGAs where refugees most frequently settle in Australia. Based on in-depth qualitative interviews and focus groups with refugees and local service providers, the report highlights:

  • the aspirations, achievements and challenges refugees experience when settling in Australia

  • how refugees feel about the places where they now live

  • refugee experiences of community and belonging

  • challenges and strategies for equitable access to local services

We would like to invite you to join us to the official launch of The Edmund Rice Centre’s new report: 'Settlement Cities Report: A Place-Based Study of Australia’s Major Refugee Settlement Destinations' on Monday 7th November 2022, 4pm EADT (3.30pm Adelaide, 3pm Brisbane). The report launch will include a brief panel and Q & A discussion.


The event is free, but registration is essential - please click here to RSVP.
