La Trobe University Shepparton would like to invite you to a special panel discussion: “Research and regional migration: What matters to whom and why?” on Thursday 9 November from 5:30pm.
Migration to Shepparton and regional Victoria has gained increasing attention over recent years, but it is not a new phenomenon. Researchers at La Trobe have investigated several key issues related to regional migration for some time, including labour shortages in horticulture, health messaging to migrant communities during COVID, and many others.
Join a panel of researchers from La Trobe’s School of Humanities and Social Sciences (HUSS) and explore the role of research to answer these questions:
- How does employment shape a migrants’ decision to live, work, and remain in a regional town?
- What does migration mean for regional stakeholders in the business and community sector?
- What has the pandemic taught us about communication between the state and migrant communities in regional Victoria?
- How do university students of migrant and refugee background experience studying in Regional Victoria?
- What can we learn from experiences of disaster among migrant communities in regional Victoria?
