Karen Block

Karen is currently working on a range of projects involving children and young people with a focus on social inclusion, health inequalities, evaluating complex interventions and working in collaborative partnerships with the community.

Her doctoral project, Refugee Youth, Social Inclusion and Health, aims to contribute to a deeper understanding of the issues impacting on social inclusion for newly-arrived adolescent and young adult refugees in Australia and to inform policy and program development relating to service provision for this population. This research is supported by a NHMRC postgraduate scholarship and a Sidney Myer Health Scholarship.  


As we prepare to vote on Saturday, are we mainly considering our own hip pocket or longer-term issues about the good of society? Karen Block
