Layman's description

The Civic Sinoburbia Project is a social research project that will engage with local communities and policy makers across the three case study sites.

The project will run from 2020 to 2024 and is conducted by researchers from Western Sydney University and the University of Technology Sydney. It is funded by the Australian Research Council (DP200102072).

The project examines how new Chinese migrants participate in civic and cultural life in three Sydney suburbs that have different demographic profiles and different histories of migrant settlement and urban development – Eastwood, Hurstville and Zetland.
