Join us to celebrate the launch of the ARC Linkage Report on Social Networks, Belonging and Active Citizenship Amongst Migrant Youth in Australia to be launched by:
Maria Vamvakinou MP
Federal Member for Calwell
This project focussed on youth from three Australian migrant communities at the centre of recent debates about migrant integration, intercultural conflict and social cohesion. It investigated the role of formal and informal networks in creating among migrant youth a sense of belonging to the mainstream society.
The project also redressed a critical gap in popular and official understandings of the social fabric of Australia and provides benchmark data for improved government and community services in the area of migrant youth. It examined and assessed the role of social networks in informing young people's sense of belonging and active participation in the community of citizens.
