Dr Alexandra Leipold will be joining us all the way from Europe to share how Germany is strengthening engagement in education and employment for young migrants and refugees.
Anya Satyanand, Executive Officer of Ara Taiohi, New Zealand’s youth peak body, will be talking about superdiversity and building on young people’s cultural capabilities.
Professor Fethi Mansouri will bring a local to global perspective on human rights, global citizenship and the place of young people.

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.
