Refugees and regional settlement : balancing priorities

by Taylor, Janet | Brotherhood of St Laurence | Stanovic, Dayane.

Publisher: Fitzroy, Vic. Brotherhood of St Laurence 2005Description: vi, 61 p.Online Access: Electronic copy | Summary Notes: May 2005 Summary: "Refugees have become one distinctive face of social exclusion at the beginning of the 21st century. Australia's response to people seeking refuge is an indicator of progress made towards the inclusive and compassionate society which is the vision of the Brotherhood of St Laurence. Part of the Brotherhood's research has been to explore different ways of thinking about the definitions and measurement of disadvantage and to draw attention to the experience of groups who are unable to participate fully in Australian society. The research informing this report develops our work in applying a social exclusion framework (examining resources, relationships and rights)in this instance to an analysis of the settlement experience of refugees in regional Victoria. Promoting refugees' inclusion by linking them to the workforce and development needs of various regions in Victoria is a policy solution with considerable appeal to governments. But will the refugees find work and be made welcome in Victoria's country towns? This report examines the refugee settlement experience in Shepparton, Colac and Warrnambool. Taylor and Stanovic's richly layered account shows that policy planners contemplating future settlements need to think not only about the usual range of issues that migrants encounter regarding employment, housing, income and language, but also about concerns specific to refugees. ; The report also highlights two other aspects of the Brotherhood's vision of an inclusive society. First, it shows the need for careful planning of joined-up services, with the participation of refugee communities. Governments must act to ensure that the necessary community capacity is in place. Second, it demonstrates the need to invest in social programs in tandem with planning economic development, to ensure the employment and learning opportunities which are ultimately vital to social inclusion." -- Forward by Paul SmythAvailability: Items available for loan: Brotherhood of St Laurence (1), BSL Archives (1).

The report highlights that almost 5000 refugees and other humanitarian entrants have resettled in Queensland from Africa in the past five years. Many have migrated from Sudan, the Democratic Republic of the Congo, Ethiopia, Liberia, Sierra Leone, Somalia, Rwanda and Uganda where they have experienced oppressive and abusive regimes. The report also showed that refugees from Africa faced many barriers as they sought to build a new life in Queensland such as limited English language and literacy skills, low education levels as well as securing long-term employment and accessing services. The report explains how government agencies can help improve access to services by presenting information about services in culturally-appropriate ways; providing appropriate consultations with African refugee communities, work placements and also offering cross-cultural training for staff "-- Publisher.Availability: Items available for loan: Brotherhood of St Laurence (1).

by Human Rights and Equal Opportunity Commission.

Human Rights and Equal Opportunity Commission 2010Description: PDF.Other title: African Australians Project.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: Contents: includes : Training and employment -- Education -- Health -- Housing -- Engaging with the justice system -- Emerging issues -- Ways forwardSummary: African Australians have so much to contribute to the Australian society, but this can only happen when there is a sense of belonging, when people feel part of this country, when they call this country home. There is a long history of migration between Africa and Australia ? however in recent years, it has accelerated. ; In 2006, a total of 248,699 people born in Africa were living in Australia.[1] This figure represents 5.6% of Australia?s overseas-born population and around one per cent of the country?s total population. Since then, around 50,000 more migrants born in Africa have arrived in Australia. They come from nearly all countries on the African continent, representing a diverse range of cultures, religions and language groups. The majority (72.6%) are from Southern and Eastern Africa, with 22.9% from North Africa (which includes Sudan) and 4.5% from Central and West Africa. ; Around 100,000 people (41%) of the total African population in Australia were born in South Africa. Other large communities include Zimbabwe (8.1%), Sudan (7.7%), Mauritius (4%), Kenya (4%) and Ethiopia (2.3%).In December 2007, the former Race Discrimination Commissioner Tom Calma launched a project to build a national picture of the lives and experiences of African Australians. ; The aims of the project were to: ; identify what can help and what can hinder the settlement and integration experiences of African Australians ; suggest practical solutions to inform the development of policies, programs and services for African Australians, as well as broader community education initiatives ; address some of the stereotypes about African Australians that had been raised in recent public debate and media reporting.

What works : employment strategies for refugee and humanitarian entrants /

by Olliff, Louise | Refugee Council of Australia.

Publisher: Surry Hills, N.S.W. Refugee Council of Australia 2010Description: PDF.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: INTO AND OUT OF WORKSummary: The Refugee Council of Australia?s national research into sustainable employment pathways and refugee background communities. The overarching aim of this research has been to map, analyse and model solutions to the barriers that refugee entrants face in making the transition to meaningful, sustainable employment in Australia. What Works: Employment strategies for refugee and humanitarianentrants presents the findings from this investigation. Gaining stable, adequately-remunerated, fulfilling employment is a significant contributor towards successful resettlement for refugee and humanitarian entrants. Despite these entrants? eagerness to participate in the Australian workforce and the wealth of skills and experience that they bring to Australia, research has shown that former refugees are overrepresented among the ranks of underemployed, lowly-paid, low-skilled, precariously employed and casualised members of the labour force, and that they face many specific barriers to employment.Availability: (1)
