How are young multicultural people faring?

Over 1,900 15 to 25 year olds across Australia were surveyed by Melbourne University (AAP)

The first national study of young people from migrant and refugee backgrounds has found they face a number of challenges, including discrimination and inter-generational conflict. Broadcast on the 31st of January, 2019.

It also found many felt a strong sense of belonging to the Australian community.

The opinions of over 1,900 15 to 25 year olds from across Australia were surveyed by Melbourne University in 2017.

The result is the Multicultural Youth Australia Census - the first national study of people from migrant and refugee backgrounds.

The study's co-author, Rimi Khan, says it provides a much needed picture for policy makers of the different experiences and needs of multicultural youth.

It found high levels of engagement across a number of social, community and cultural activities.

More than three quarters of new arrivals said ‘I feel like I belong in Australia’, ‘in my local area’ and ‘I belong in my school’.
