Abstract

This report presents findings from a qualitative study with young people from refugee and migrant backgrounds living in the Greater Dandenong and Casey area about the impact of police encounters on their sense of belonging. The report focuses solely on experiences of belonging and non-belonging as reported by community members. A subsequent report will include material from interviews with Victoria Police members. It will analyse policing practice in more depth, identifying systemic factors that shape interactions between police and these communities.
