The Social Impact of Family Separation on Refugee Settlement and Inclusion in Australia


Principal investigator Rebecca Wickes (Principal Investigator), Rebecca Powell (Co-Investigator), John Van Kooy (Co-Investigator)
The main purpose of the proposed research is to document human migration and resettlement experience, with a particular focus of migrants from Syria, the Horn of Africa, and Asia (especially Afghanistan). The particular focus of the study is to determine the impact of family separation on resettlement and social inclusion outcomes for refugees and their host communities in Australia. The findings will help strengthen the evidence-base on resettlement as well as inform Oxfam’s campaign on migration focusing on family reunion.
