The Cities and Settlement Initiative was a Centre for Policy Development initiative that sought to capture a triple dividend: benefiting vulnerable Australians; boosting the budget; and improving community cohesion.
It sought better governance and coordination connected to partnerships and delivery at the local level. The Cities and Settlement Initiative was a key building block of the Resilient People and Places Program.
The objectives of the Cities and Settlement Initiative included:
Settling Better: Reforming refugee employment and settlement services charts a new approach to refugee employment and settlement services
Seven Steps to SUCCESS draws on Australian and international best practice to make a series of key policy recommendations to government, business and civil society on how to better support refugee entrepreneurs
Putting Language in Places charts reforms to the Adult Migrant English Program to improve the economic participation of refugees in Australia
