Welcome to the website of the Flinders Migrant and Refugee Research Cluster (MARRC).
Its purpose is to highlight the research being undertaken by Flinders University staff on past and present migration and refugee flows, their multi-dimensional causes, long-term impacts on host communities, and the experience of migration.
The main themes that engage migration and refugee research at Flinders University are:
- Refugee settlement, well-being and inclusion
- Australia's migration history
- Transnational communities of migration
- Displacement as a result of disasters, climate change or development
MARRC researchers have a wide range of research interests and capabilities. They are located all across the university in history, population studies, international studies, public health, nursing, law, legal studies, education and the humanities.
