Abstract: This paper explores and analyses the social dynamics that impact on organisational relationships between mainstream social-support organisations and refugee and migrant organisations and communities in New Zealand. Specifically, it addresses how such relationships are formed and maintained. The paper describes and analyses such transcultural practice using Das and Teng's (2001) trust, risk and control schema, focusing on what works and why it works, and outlining strategies to enable the implementation of such partnerships at other sites. Thus, the research is a resource for those working in social-service and community-development organisations that have entered (or intend to enter) into transcultural relationships with refugee and migrant organisations and communities.
