Oppositional Identities and employment for ethnic minorities : evidence from England /

by Battu, Harminder | Zenou, Yves.

Publisher: Bonn, Germany Institute for the Study of Labor 2009Description: PDF.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: IZA DP No. 4517 INTO AND OUT OF WORKSummary: Where a community or group is socially excluded from a dominant group, some individuals of that group may identify with the dominant culture and others may reject that culture. The aim of this paper is to investigate this issue by empirically analyzing the potential trade-off for ethnic minorities between sticking to their own roots and labour market success. We find that the social environment of individuals and attachments to culture of origin has a strong association with identity choice. Our results also suggest that those non-whites who have preferences that accord with being "oppositional" do experience an employment penalty.Availability: Items available for loan: Brotherhood of St Laurence (1).

Sudanese in south east Melbourne : perspectives of a new and emerging community /

by Collopy, Bill (ed.) | South Eastern Region Migrant Resource Centre | Langley, Emma (ed.).

Publisher: South Eastern Region Migrant Resource Centre 2010Description: PDF.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: A community profile provided by South Eastern Region Migrant Resource Centre. This profile has been developed with the assistance of funding from the Department of Immigration and Citizenship. Bibliography : p. 49-51Summary: After leaving their homeland, and forced to leave loved ones behind, refugees face many challenges upon arriving in Australia. A new and unfamiliar home provides both a sanctuary and a threat to traditional ways of life. Adapting to new laws, customs and social standards, and needing to learn about unfamiliar monetary, regulatory, medical, education and employment systems places enormous pressure on individuals and families. For these reasons, we have designed this document to assist service providers develop a greater understanding of refugee needs. We hope that improved knowledge will shape the ways in which providers can deliver better and more culturally appropriate services to the various Sudanese communities. This document is not intended to be formal research; rather it is a collection of personal perspectives by members of the various Sudanese communities on their settlement experiences. To do this, we have documented aspects of community development by the Sudanese in Victoria, specifically in the south-eastern region of Melbourne.Availability: (1)

The stranger who comes today and leaves after tomorrow : an analysis of current concerns with migrants' and refugees' regional settlement and mobility /

by Boese, Martina | The Australian Sociological Association.

Publisher: unpub. 2010Description: PDF.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: Conference paper presented at The Australian Sociological Association (TASA) Conference. Social Causes, Private Lives (2010 : North Ryde, N.S.W.)Summary: The regional migration and settlement of migrants and refugees is an issue that concerns a wide range of actors beyond the migrating subjects themselves. These include policy makers involved in the management of migration, state governments seeking to address regional labour shortages and demographic decline, so-called host communities responding to newcomers, and local businesses in demand of compliant labour. These diverse agents tend to share a general interest in the attraction and largely also the retention of migrants or refugees. A closer analysis reveals the diverse expectations of migrants and refugees that inform the concerns of non-migrant, non-refugee actors with migrants? and refugees? settlement and mobility. This paper explores regional migrant and refugee settlement, relevant policy rationales and the existing research on these forms of settlement with a focus on interests and perspectives on regional settlers held in the so-called host society. It suggests that these interests and specific perspectives on the ?stranger? are indicative of a currently prevailing understanding and governmental framing of a multicultural Australia based on migration management.Availability: (1)
