Abstract

Negative Australian media and political discourse concerning refugees have often portrayed them as a burden, cost or threat to the Australian community, and/or unable or unwilling to integrate into the broader Australian community because of their (‘illegal’) means of arrival, or their cultural, religious and educational characteristics. The report investigates the innovative social, cultural and economic contributions of Hazara humanitarian migrants to the Port Adelaide-Enfield community, Adelaide, South Australia. Refugees rejuvenating and connecting communities deepens and broadens our knowledge of the potential transformative and rejuvenative impact that refugee-background migrants can have on communities, including their own, adding valuable understandings of how this can be beneficial in other contexts across Adelaide, Australia and internationally.
