Messenger The concentration of disadvantaged people in certain parts of cities is almost always seen as undesirable by urban researchers and policymakers. But is this always the case?
While violence and poverty have been cited as the reasons for the exodus, experts say the big picture is that changing climate is forcing farmers off their land – and it’s likely to get worse.

Auburn is 19km west of the Sydney CBD. As part of a broader research projectwe chose two suburbs that were identified as disadvantaged and characterised by high numbers of immigrants.
We spoke with residents and local service providers about their experiences, place changes over time and current settlement opportunities for newly arriving migrants.
The suburbs we chose were Auburn in Sydney and Springvale in Melbourne.
Springvale is 23km south-east of the Melbourne CBD. Auburn and Springvale may have high concentrations of disadvantaged people, as defined by Australian Bureau of Statistics data in terms of income, employment and language proficiency in particular.
But they are not disadvantaged places.
They have a plethora of social and community services, along with a good selection of shops and services catering to the local community. Historically, these suburbs have been major hubs for providing resources and support to new and established migrant communities. Government subsidised some of these.
Many grew more organically through community relationships and support needs. With the decline of manufacturing from the late s and changing immigration policies, government support has retracted in these areas. This has been accompanied by a winding back of government support for housing and a rapidly changing housing market.
The legacy of these areas has meant that both Auburn and Springvale continue to have high degrees of amenity and social and economic infrastructure.
This includes a high concentration of grassroots community groups.
These provide support to recent immigrants in general and refugees in particular. Author provided These are good places to live. But there are signs this is changing.
Broader changes in urban housing markets and migration policies, and economic and labour market restructuring, are beginning to undermine the benefits for immigrants settling in these areas. Increasingly unaffordable housing, reduced employment opportunities in low-skilled jobs and the erosion of government support for newly arrived immigrants mean migrants are at risk of greater disadvantage than in the past.
In particular, housing costs are increasing rapidly in Auburn and Springvale. While private market housing has successfully housed new migrants in the past, this is no longer the case. Many migrants can no longer afford to live in these areas, except in overcrowded or otherwise unsatisfactory living conditions.
Rental stock is in bad disrepair. Refugees and recent arrivals go into these houses and real estate agents are slow to act on people living in substandard conditions and are reluctant to do anything about it.
In the context of recent shifts in Australian immigration policy away from humanitarian and family migrants and towards skilled and student migrants, this is perhaps not a government priority. But it should be. It introduces further complexity for organisations trying to support successful integration as they work across dispersed locations.
Ultimately, these developments create the risk that Australian society will miss out on the enduring cultural, social and economic contributions made by migrants who choose to call Australia home.of the economic and social contributions of migrants to Western Australia and this report is based on his review.

Chinese migrants and the gold rush. Students learn about the way of life of Chinese people who migrated to Australia and their contributions to Australia’s economic and social development.
Key Findings. Australia has a vested interest to contribute proactively to the UN Global Compact on Refugees. Australia’s contribution should draw on its experience and expertise on technical and financial support to new resettlement countries, complementary pathways for refugees, capacity development for regional partners, leveraging private sector support, and setting standards on.
The immigration history of Australia began with the initial human migration to the continent around 80, years ago when the ancestors of Australian Aboriginals arrived on the continent via the islands of Maritime Southeast Asia and New Guinea.
From the early 17th century onwards, the continent experienced the first coastal landings and exploration by European explorers. 1. Introduction. The effective implementation of immunization strategies targeting migrants can protect migrant children and adults from infectious diseases, prevent spread of infection and guarantee the continuity of paediatric immunization schedules that may have been interrupted in countries of origin because of wars and civil unrest.
