MDA settles every newly arrived refugee in Brisbane, Rockhampton and Toowoomba
MDA is an independent, non-government, settlement organisation committed to achieving the best settlement outcomes for our clients and to working actively to promote multiculturalism.
Through our presence in metropolitan and regional Queensland, we work in partnership with our clients, other service providers, government agencies and the private sector to achieve quality service delivery through advocacy, client service delivery, community development and multicultural sector development.
Assessing the economic contribution of refugees in Australia
MDA is proud to present a new research paper, ‘Assessing the economic contribution of refugees in Australia. Produced by Dr Richard Parsons and published by MDA, the paper concludes that despite the many barriers to employment encountered by refugees during their resettlement, there is no evidence that refugees impose a net economic cost to Australia in the long term.
