LTUMigration and Multiculturalism Research Cluster

The LTU  Migration and Multiculturalism research cluster focuses on social, cultural, economic and political issues related to diversities and social justice. It includes research on different forms of migration and mobility, and related challenges to equity and equality, dignity and safety, health and well-being in multicultural communities and societies. Researchers in the cluster examine these issues as they are experienced intersectionally by people locally, nationally and transnationally and provide research-based evidence to drive social change in creating more just and equitable, diverse societies. 

The current projects focus on: 

·         Regional migrant work  

·         Aged care, technology and transnational networks  

·         Cultural diversity and inclusion in regional cities 

·         Modern slavery and international human rights 

·         Linguistic diversity and social cohesion 

·         Diasporas and identity  

·         Diversity and social justice in education 

·         Migrant and second-generation youth

·         Refugee settlement and employment pathways 

The cluster defines ‘multicultural’ in its most inclusive understanding, and it includes groups and individuals of different migrant and non-migrant, Indigenous, ethnic, racialized, class, gender, sexuality, deafness, disability, and neurodiversity backgrounds.
