A Place to Stay: Promoting the development of sustainable refugee communities in Tasmania

Selina Claxton 2000, Refugees, Reports, Research library

The refugee issue is usually presented as a humanitarian one, and indeed given the distressing and painful circumstances that these people have experienced, this is appropriate. However, in Tasmania’s case there is another dimension to this issue that is easily missed, the social and economic future of our state. A vigorous proactive state response to this issue in partnership with the Commonwealth should be understood as a core strategy in responding to the serious economic and social challenges faced by Tasmania.
