This program of research is concerned with the physical and social impact of population growth in Australia, with a specific focus on the short and long term consequences of increased immigration for social inclusion. This program comprises multiple and complimentary themes that will structure research collaborations and projects:
Theme 1: The spatial concentration of immigrant groups and consequences for the economic and social life of urban and regional communities
Theme 2: Temporal changes in social relationships, attitudes and social actions in communities experiencing increases in diversity and/or immigrant concentration.
Theme 3: Negotiating settlement in Australia for new arrived immigrants.
