Settling in: exploring good settlement for refugee young people in Australia

18 Dec 2006
Description

Australia is a country with a long history of effectively resettling refugees, however shifts in the make-up of our humanitarian intake, as well as changing political, international and socioeconomic environments, impact on the settlement experiences and outcomes of newly arrived young people and communities. Reviewing the Australian settlement system can help identify gaps in services as well as positive practices, and assist in planning for better outcomes for refugee young people and the broader Australian community.

This paper seeks to explore definitions and meanings of ‘good settlement’, investigate our current service system, introduce some of the components of effective settlement systems which address young people’s needs, and make a series of recommendations within a ‘framework for good youth settlement.’
