How Australia-based diaspora respond to crises
Location: No location set
Sub-Project 1 of the “Diaspora Humanitarian” Linkage project is underway!
We want to hear from Australia-based diaspora communities that are/were involved and responded to eight case study crises that impacted communities from Afghanistan, Indonesia, Tonga, Myanmar, Nepal, Lebanon, Syria, and South Sudan.
If you are a community member based in Australia who have been involved in the response to one of our case study crises listed above, we would like to invite you to take one of our online survey listed below.
Surveys are available in different languages and are specific to each country/region.
The ‘Diaspora Humanitarians’ project is funded by the Australian Research Council and aims to understand and enhance how Australia-based migrants respond to support their communities during disasters, conflicts, epidemics, and other humanitarian crises. Our aims are to:
- Describe and explain where, how and why Australia-based diasporas are engaging in humanitarian responses
- Identify necessary conditions for effective diaspora engagement within humanitarian response systems
- Support diasporas and mainstream humanitarian organisations with innovative tools to make a positive difference.
