The Social Policy Research Centre, in collaboration with the Centre for Refugee Research and the Faculty of Medicine, Nursing and Health Services, Monash University are undertaking a mixed method research design to address the aims of the evaluation. This includes: monitoring program processes, measuring outcomes for children and vulnerable families placed in community-based detention, and determining costs. The methodological approach has been developed to fit the key attributes of the residential determination program, the evaluation objectives and the conceptual framework.
