Across the world large numbers of people are displaced every year and seek asylum in other countries. For example, in 2010 ‘…there were an estimated 43.7 million forcibly displaced people worldwide, including 15.4 million refugees, 837 500 asylum seekers and 27.5 million internally displaced persons’ (Phillips, 2011, p. 1). This number is increasing with the United Nations High Commission for Refugees stating that there are currently over 52 million refugees and displaced people worldwide (UNCHR, 2016). The number of refugees settled in Australia is comparatively small-in the five-year period, 2011-2015, 70,721 humanitarian refugees were settled in Australia (Department of Social Services, 2017c).
