Intergenerational Relations in Newly-Arrived Communities in Victoria, Australia

The Ethnic Communities Council of Victoria (ECCV) and the Alfred Deakin Institute for Citizenship and Globalisation (ADI), Deakin University share a common concern with understanding intergenerational issues among newly arrived communities in Victoria. Intergenerational relationships serve as both a strength and vulnerability during the often harsh process of family migration. These tensions are often not easily understood by research and policy makers, not least because community emotions can fall outside the scope of the policy process. Compounding this is a contemporary policy climate focusing on social cohesion and disengaged youth.

This study examines the nature of relations between parents and adolescents in newly-arrived migrant communities in Victoria, Australia as they negotiate the challenges of migration, settlement and integration.
