Refugee Wellbeing Study

HOST International has begun a research project in partnership with the Refugee Trauma and Recovery Program at UNSW in Sydney and SUAKA in Jakarta with the aim to investigate the adaptation of refugees and asylum-seekers in environments of sustained displacement over a two-year period.

The study will aim to understand the strengths and needs of refugees living in sustained displacement to inform practice. More specifically, we aim to identify the coping strategies used by refugees who adapt more positively to life in sustained displacement, and the specific needs of those who require more support.
