Help Monash University in its research project!

The Monash University is looking for people holding an Italian citizenship, who voted in at least one election as an Italian abroad and has lived most of their adult life in Australia or who hold a key role within Italian institutions in Australia or in Italy.

The scope of the research is to understand whether policies implemented to support the acquisition of Italian language skills by second- and third-generation Italians living abroad (including in Australia) are effective in supporting them in the development of language skills necessary to participate in political debate in their country of origin.
