Many of us who work with, research alongside, or financially support humanitarian organisations globally, in some way want to make the world a better place. This research into contemporary migration for those fleeing their home countries and seeking asylum in a host nation was designed to hear the voices of the many who remain voiceless. In this mixed methods study, I have explored and examined how people with refugee and asylum seeking backgrounds draw on their social capital to re-establish their livelihoods, with a particular emphasis on career adaptability. My findings show for participants in this study, developing social capital trust leading to bridging and linking social engagement was pivotal in enabling the re-establishment of livelihoods in Australia.
