The fourth ‘mini’ meeting of the Council on Economic Participation for Refugees was held on 8 August 2019 at the Canberra office of the Boston Consulting Group. Building on the momentum from the meeting in April 2019, this meeting sought to further the opportunities created by the centre of gravity for humanitarian settlement services in the Department of Home Affairs.
The objectives of the fourth Council meeting were to:
- Identify opportunities to implement ‘Community Deals’ at a local level to lift economic and social participation for humanitarian migrants.
- To picture the ideal 2022 service delivery system to boost economic participation for refugees and the opportunities for iterating towards that system at the local and national levels.
