Maximizing the development impacts from temporary migration recommendations for Australia’s seasonal worker program (Inglês)

The Seasonal Worker Program (SWP) was formally introduced in 2012 following a four yearpilot scheme. The SWP maintains the dual objectives of: (i) contributing to the economicdevelopment of nine participating Pacific Island countries and Timor-Leste; and (ii)filling labor shortages in the Australian agriculture, accommodation (in selected locations)and tourism sectors (the Northern Australia tourism pilot). This paper assesses the first ofthese objectives, evaluating the impact of the SWP on workers, their households, and communities.In doing so, it aims to build on the evidence already collected on the developmentimpacts of the Pacific Seasonal Worker Pilot Scheme (PSWPS) (Gibson and McKenzie 2011)and shed further light on how the program can be improved to increase the benefitsflowing through to the Pacific region.
