This research based paper will discuss social interaction among Jordanian immigrants in Australia with reference to interaction with other Arab immigrants and the Australian host community. The paper addresses the level of social interaction among Jordanians by examining the attitudes of Jordanian immigrants in Australia towards other communities and towards the host society. The research also focuses on the nature of economic and social ties of Jordanian immigrants with family in Jordan and the effects of these ties upon the level of social interaction in the new environment. Further, as Australia has become a host country to immigrants and refugees from various nations at war, the study will also explore whether Jordanian immigrants preserve their attitudes, positive and negative, toward other Arab groups when they come to Australia.
