You’re invited to share your perspective in this national piece of research aimed at improving community engagement and participation for Australians of all backgrounds. 

Conducted jointly at La Trobe University and the University of Chicago, USA, this survey seeks to answer what the “good life” involve for Australians of a refugee background. For instance, is it driven by comfort, pleasure, purpose, meaning, rich experiences, or perhaps a combination of all?

Approved by La Trobe University’s Human Ethics Committee (HEC21372), this research is crucial in the context of facilitating personal adjustments and encouraging community enrichment for Australians of all backgrounds.
