The Monash Migration and Inclusion Centre (MMIC) takes an interdisciplinary, evidence based approach to understanding migration and social, economic and cultural inclusion
We seek to develop knowledge and new ways of thinking about migration and social inclusion, bringing fresh insights into current policy debates.
The Centre is actively supporting the next generation of migration researchers and offers high-quality professional development opportunities.
We work closely with community organisations, policy stakeholders, government and industry bodies.
The Centre brings together the University’s interdisciplinary excellence in migration and inclusion research.
MMIC brings together a multidisciplinary team for a new project on digital engagement with diverse young people
The Monash Migration and Inclusion Centre has successfully been awarded funding from the Department of Premier and Cabinet, Victoria, to deliver a research project, ‘Co-designing and scaling effective COVID-19 communication strategies for young people from culturally and linguistically diverse (CALD) communities in Victoria’.
Under the leadership of Associate Professor Rebecca Wickes, MMIC is working with a multidisciplinary research team from the Action Lab (Faculty of IT), the School of Public Health and Preventive Medicine, and BehaviourWorks Australia, to develop and implement this project.
The co-design approach, facilitated by the Monash team, puts bicultural workers from NGOs across Victoria, and CALD young people at the centre of the project. The research will highlight the ways in which young people have been using technology to communicate during COVID-19. Building on these insights, the team will create effective digital communication and engagement strategies that will help organisations deliver important crisis information to this target group.
This year, the ‘MMIC Postgraduate Network’ was refreshed as the ‘MMIC Next Generation Network’. Led by MMIC’s Research Fellow, Dr Charishma Ratnam, the Network is growing from strength to strength. Now with over 190 members, there are plans to bring further visibility to the Network in the coming years.
In the wake of the U.S election voter engagement has been highlighted as crucial to the functioning of democracies. Emigration waves have increased the presence of transnational communities worldwide, resulting in institutions and programmes that help non-resident citizens to maintain their language and to actively participate in the life of their country of origin.
Does the COVID-19 lockdown represent a temporary trough in global population movements, or the beginning of the end of the most recent age of migration? This webinar sets an agenda for research on the future of human migration and mobility after the 2020 pandemic, posing ten key questions for the panel of migration and mobility researchers to consider for the coming months and years.
Recently the Monash Migration and Inclusion Centre hosted the inaugural online Hackathon, in partnership with BehaviourWorks Australia and Wyndham City Council. Titled, ‘Designing behavioural solutions to industry problems: Inclusive employment practices for Wyndham City Council’, the Hackathon sought to advance behaviour change skills and knowledge in designing strategies to promote diversity and inclusion in local government councils.
