Episode # 5 – Resettlement and Resilience

Savannah to Suburbia - South Sudanese Australian Stories

02-09-2018 • 1 hr 7 mins

Welcome to the final episode of this series, Resettlement and Resilience.

In this episode we’ll hear stories of how people came to Australia and what that has been like; and the ways in which, over the decades, Australian immigration policies have shaped the experiences of different migrant groups, including those from South Sudan.

We’ll also hear about the impact of the new civil war in South Sudan on the communities in Australia, and their efforts to help family members caught up yet again in conflict, and their support and efforts for peace.
