Natasha’s research will focus on the effectiveness of the governance arrangements for managing Papua New Guinea’s participation in Australian seasonal worker schemes. The objective of her research is to identify best-practice recruitment method(s) specific for PNG that will generate a reliable returning workforce. Migrant workers’ experiences will be monitored from the time of selection in PNG, through their time in Australia and following their return to PNG. Their performance will also be considered according to employers’ feedback. The development impact of the program will be evaluated against PNG’s Medium Term Development Plan, specifically key result area one, increased revenue and wealth creation, and key result area three, sustainable social development. The research design will be informed by the ‘triple win’ framework associated with labour mobility, which considers the benefits for the migrant, sending country and the destination country.
