Vietnamese Women: Voices and Narratives of the Diaspora

Project: Research

Project Description

Australian Research Council (ARC) Australian Research Fellowship

Migration and multiculturalism are hotly debated issues in Australia today. Engagement with Asia being one of the 3 pillars of Australian national security, it is all the more vital to conduct research on how Asian migrants have successfully integrated into Australian society.
The Vietnamese overcame early difficulties to settle successfully here. Women played a major part in this. Their story is a tribute both to their determination to adapt to a new land and to Australia's willingness to accept new arrivals. This study will help address national and gender stereotypes, assist in fostering positive community relations, provide a deeper understanding of a significant refugee group, and contribute to strengthening Australia's social fabric.
