About the report:
In Australia, data collection on economic participation and employment outcomes for young people from refugee and migrant backgrounds is sparse and MYAN has responded to this gap by engaging Deloitte Access Economics to contribute an evidence base to this area.
The COVID-19 pandemic has affected the lives of everyone in the Australian community in acute and unpredictable ways including people’s livelihood, and this report finds that while are among the groups most impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic they also one of the most crucial to Australia’s economic recovery and long-term sustainability.
COVID-19 and young migrants – impact and solutions provides expert economic analysis on employment data specific to young people from refugee and migrant backgrounds. This report highlights the impact of COVID-19 on employment for young people and reveals how the recession of 2020 will likely have lasting effects on young people, particularly young migrants.
