|Longitudinal Study:||BNLA||Title:||Building a New Life in Australia: the Longitudinal Study of Humanitarian Migrants||Authors:||Marshall, David||Institution:||Department of Social Services||Issue Date:||Sep-2015||Pages:||3||Keywords:||Settlement
|Abstract:||Building a New Life in Australia: the Longitudinal Study of Humanitarian Migrants (BNLA) is following a large cohort of recently arrived humanitarian migrants as they settle into life Australia. The first Wave of the BNLA study provides an important insight to the diversity, disadvantages and potential vulnerabilities and challenges facing refugees and asylum seekers settling in Australia. While the vast majority report positive settlement experiences, many participants have significant disadvantages to overcome during their settlement journey. For some this includes limited or no education, and lack of work experience prior to coming to Australia. For others compromised physical or mental health will be key issues. These initial findings give insight to the difficulties that these new Australians face.||URL:||https://www.dss.gov.au/national-centre-for-longitudinal-data/building-a-new-life-in-australia-the-longitudinal-study-of-humanitarian-migrants||Keywords:||Culture -- Immigrants; Life Events -- Immigration / newly arrived migrants||Research collection:||Reports and technical papers
