Global Melbourne - A City of Diversity

Fri 28 February 2014

The latest report from the Globalisation and Cities Research Program on Global Melbourne has been released.

Global Melbourne- A City of Diversity focuses on new international migration to the greater Melbourne region in terms of country of origin (by birth), the spatial distribution of Melbourne’s largest new migrant groups, and skilled migration. This has been undertaken using specific types of spatial scales, to give a greater understanding of where the 287,365 newly-arrived international migrants, who settled in the greater Melbourne region between 2006 and 2011, chose to live.

This report is one of a series of research projects as part of the collaboration between the Institute for Governance and the Commonwealth Department of Immigration and Border Protection, to better understand people movement to Australian cities in the context of contemporary globalization.
