Foundations for Belonging: A snapshot of newly arrived refugees
We are proud to be supporting Settlement Services International (SSI) in their launch of their latest research, Foundations for Belonging: A snapshot of newly arrived refugees.
The research was produced by SSI and the Institute for Culture and Society, Western Sydney University.
The study shines a light on the social and civic dimensions of integration: social bonds, social bridges, social links and rights and responsibilities.
The research examines these dimensions from the perspectives of refugees themselves and their everyday experiences of welcome, participation and belonging in the early stages of settlement.
It points to a series of actions that governments, policymakers, service providers and civil society can pursue to strengthen their contribution to settlement and integration.
