Many Sudanese people have fled their homeland to join the growing number of Sudanese people living in other countries.

Through the hard work of humanitarian organisations, such as the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees, the International Red Cross and the various host states of Sudanese refugees including Australia, Canada and Germany, the resettlement of Sudanese people in safe third countries has been made possible. The needs of the Sudanese community when they arrive and settle in these nations is the focus of research presented on this page.


Music therapy in the Australian Sudanese refugee community (webpage)

This study, conducted through the University of Queensland, looks at the response of Sudanese refugee children to music therapy in Brisbane, Australia. The paper makes a comparative analysis of the health outcomes of Sudanese and settled Australian communities. It explores health songs and rituals and draws attention to the social role of music in Sudan. The paper concludes by stating the benefits of music therapy, particularly rhythmic focused activities, for Sudanese refugees in Australia.
