Seasonal Worker Program

Examining how participation in Australia’s Seasonal Worker Program impacts care arrangements in Tongan households

Adopting a mixed method approach, this research examines disruptions to Tongan households that participate in Australia’s Seasonal Worker Programme (SWP). The objective of this study is to analyse changes to care arrangements of migrant workers and families and to evaluate the implications of family separation. Although recorded in other international migration spaces, there is little consideration given in academic literature on the SWP to the disruptions of care arrangements for absent migrant workers, families, and communities.
