This research project utilised UniSA’s internet radio station, UniCast, to investigate solutions to the challenges of resettlement for Muslim refugee youth, through their engagement in community radio. The National Ethnic and Multicultural Broadcasting Council acknowledges there are specific settlement concerns relating to practical support, community development, trauma recovery and other complex needs of refugees. This is compounded for younger people with refugee backgrounds who share many of the challenges of other migrant youth, complicated by the fact that their migration was forced rather than chosen, and that they arrive in Australia with past experiences of violence, loss and, for some, the survival of torture.
