This report details the findings of study undertaken to investigate the community safety of international students in Melbourne. The study arose out of increasing incidence of violence against international students and the polarised and heated debate about whether or not the violence was racially or opportunistically motivated. Key findings are drawn from the results of a media analysis, a survey of more than 1,000 students, 29 interviews with stakeholders and 35 indepth interviews with international students. The report canvasses the range of risk factors that impact on international student safety, the complexity of the factors that contribute to international student safety risks and the priorities necessary to enhance international student safety.
