Research Report 20: The African immigrant experience in South East Queensland

Research Associate Hyacinth Udah reports on his doctoral research.

‘The number of Africans living in Queensland has produced a significant population of great diversity. In recent years, Australia has accepted and welcomed a significant number of African immigrants, refugees and displaced persons.

‘About 1.5 % of the total Australian population of 23 million is African.What does living in a black body mean for Black Africans in Queensland?  What impacts do skin colour and race have on their everyday lives?  Data findings from a recent qualitative study of Black Africans in Queensland provide empirical evidence to understanding their lived experiences, opportunities and challenges.  As visible migrants, the African immigrants in Queensland are positioned as different and constructed as outsiders.’
