Experiences of crime in two selected migrant communities

19 Sep 2005
Description

Migrants face special challenges in a new country, especially if their language, skin colour, religion or cultural practices set them apart. To assess the experiences of crime among migrants, the Australian component of the 2004 International Crime Victimisation Survey sampled migrants who were born or whose parents were born in Vietnam or the Middle East. These respondents were more likely to feel that assaults and threats perpetrated against them were racially motivated, and were more likely to be worried about experiencing a racially based attack in the future. Higher proportions of migrants feel unsafe walking alone in the local area after dark.
