Abstract

Executive Summary: The majority of refugees resettled in Australia in the last few years came from African countries, the Middle East and Asia. During 2012-13, Australia had an intake of 20 019 humanitarian entrants (those with a refugee or other humanitarian visa), an increase of 45 per cent from the previous year (DIAC 2013g). Ensuring that refugees have access to long-term sustainable housing is one of the greatest challenges facing countries of resettlement (UNHCR 2002). The present study addresses this issue by mapping the housing experiences of refugees in Australia. Our study, Refugees, Housing and Social Inclusion Survey, is a three-year research project, which began in 2012 and focuses on the housing, homelessness, neighbourhood and broader social inclusion experiences of refugees in Perth and Melbourne.
