The Bankwest Curtin Economics Centre (BCEC) invites you to the launch of the next report in the Centre’s Focus on the States series, Finding a Place to Call Home: Immigration in Australia.

New research in this report explores the profile and evolution of immigration in Australia over recent years, and undertakes a comprehensive assessment of the contributions that migrants make to Australia’s social and economic development.

Growth in the immigrant share of Australia’s population has led to debates over the impacts that migrants have had, or will have, on various aspects of life in Australia, including labour markets, education systems, wages and social cohesion. The report provides evidence to better inform these debates, and assesses the role that migrants can play in meeting Australia’s future skills needs.

The report also devotes some much-needed attention to the health and wellbeing of immigrants, their ability to achieve their full potential, and to take a meaningful, valued and productive role in Australian society.

The report findings will be delivered by BCEC Director, Professor Alan Duncan and Associate Professor Astghik Mavisakalyan, Principal Research Fellow, BCEC.

Please join us for lunch with our esteemed panel, Hon. Dr Anne Aly MP, Federal Member for Cowan; Dr John Byrne, WA Equal Opportunity Commissioner and Ms Tamkin Essa, Multicultural Youth Advocacy Network WA Project Support Officer, Youth Affairs Council of WA.
