Community attitudes toward refugee settlement in Armidale_Appendices_ 2023
Armidale, NSW, is Australia’s newest regional refugee settlement location, with around 600 Ezidis settling there from early 2018 onwards. The University of New England, in partnership with SSI, initiated research to empirically gauge community attitudes during the first four years of refugee settlement. The research provided regular insights to SSI and others on the concerns and hopes of different segments of the Armidale community in the evolving two-way process where refugees and the host community adapt to one another and become entwined in the fabric of the local community life.
