Summary: The Syrian conflict has generated an unprecedented flow of refugees across Europe and other countries, including Australia. These countries face new challenges in providing successful settlement outcomes for the refugees. Utilizing a longitudinal study of 250 refugee families and fieldwork in key areas of high refugee settlement in NSW, Victoria and Queensland, the project focuses on the policy responses to, and settlement outcomes for, Syrian-conflict refugee families in Australia with an emphasis on employment and education. International collaboration from Germany, Sweden, Finland, Canada and New Zealand will generate comparative insights to identify policy and program responses that lead to the most successful settlement outcomes.
