We live in times of complex and constant change. We are more interconnected - economically, environmentally, politically, socially - than ever before. We also face challenges that are global in scale and complexity. Refugee and migrant young people are impacted by these global trends at multiple levels.
The 2017 MYAN Conference will consider the experiences of young people in the context of current global challenges and explore how research, policy and practice can best respond into the future.
Exploring the themes ‘Global Citizenship’, ‘Education to Work’ and ‘Social Cohesion’, this two day event will bring together international and local policymakers, practitioners, young people, academics and the business sector.
We hope the conference brings us one step closer to developing forward-looking, evidence-based strategic directions for research, policy and practice - helping young people from refugee and migrant backgrounds thrive over coming decades in an equitable, socially cohesive Australia.
