A psychological perspective on Australia's asylum policies /

by Mansouri, Fethi | Cauchi, Stephanie.

Publisher: Melbourne, Vic.International Migration Vol. 45 (1) 2007 123-150 2007Description: PDF.Notes: Brotherhood of St Laurence staff please contact the Library if you would like full text access to this articleSummary: This paper discusses mental and psychological impacts of Australia's temporary protection visa (TPV) policy on individual asylum seekers. The paper is based on personal narratives constructed by individual asylum seekers during one-on-one interviews and aims principally to sketch the discursive manifestations of stressful events in the lives of TPV holders. The fact that refugees exhibit signs of Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) is not entirely new or surprising given the level of trauma, and in many cases torture and persecution, endured in the pre-migration phase. ; What is particularly revealing among many TPV holders is the fact that their pre-migration traumatic experiences are compounded by a post-migration condition of being in indefinite "temporary" protection. This is further exacerbated by an awareness of the exclusionary discourses and policies advocated by the host government. Past trauma and persecution, combined with present family separation and social exclusion, further compounded by uncertainty about the future, results in almost chronic states of anxiety and depression among a significant number of TPV holders.Availability: Items available for loan: Brotherhood of St Laurence (1).

Interculturalism at the crossroads : comparative perspectives on concepts, policies and practices

by Mansouri, Fethi (ed.).

Publisher: Paris, France UNESCO Publishing 2017Description: 329 p. : ill. PDF.Online Access: DOWNLOAD PDF Summary: Today most societies across the world are witnessing rising levels of social and cultural diversity brought about by globalisation and in particular increased human mobility and significant advances in information and communications technologies. The dilemma, therefore, has been how best to manage the resultant diversity and what optimal social policy paradigms to adopt towards this end. Assimilation, multiculturalism and presently interculturalism have all been proposed as possible policy conduits for managing socio-cultural diversity. This book, in focusing on the latter concept, and in particular in its intercultural dialogue manifestation, offers at once theoretical examinations, policy discussion and practical explorations of its uptake across the world. The core argument connecting the book’s three distinct sections is that whilst assimilation in its racist manifestation is no longer a viable option in today’s world, intercultural dialogue within existing multicultural settings has much to offer.Availability: (1)
