Migration of Pacific Islanders to Australia

 

The Australian government is presently seeking to expand its Seasonal Workers Program, which is highly likely to involve greater levels of migration from Pacific Island Countries to Australia. It is also likely that this will involve more research projects (in Australia and in the PICs) to assess the impact of  this expansion. We have been asked by DFAT (and the Pacific Labour Facility)  to compile a register of researchers who are actively involved in work on Pacific labour mobility either in the PICs, Australia or New Zealand.  This register will work as a 'go to' database for upcoming seminars, funding and other research opportunities. If you would like to be included on the register could you please forward the following details to Kirstie Petrou (kirstie.petrou@utas.edu.au) or John Connell (john.connell@sydney.edu.au) by 1st March: name, affiliation, contact details, area(s) of expertise and a couple of sentences outlining any current projects you are working on that relate to Pacific labour mobility.

 

This circular is primarily going to geographers and anthropologists but we would very much welcome names and projects from researchers in other disciplines. Do please let us know.
