The Action Plan seeks to bring stronger co-ordination and strategy to address unmet needs of TPV refugees in Victoria.

Maximising the positive economic, social and cultural impacts of migration : submission to the Inquiry into Multiculturalism in Australia / BSL

by Brotherhood of St Laurence | Greco, Sarina.

Publisher: Fitzroy, Vic. Brotherhood of St Laurence 2011Description: 18 p. PDF.Other title: Brotherhood of St Laurence submission to the Inquiry into Multiculturalism in Australia.Online Access: Electronic copy Summary: Australia's history confirms that we need a holistic social policy framework for all citizens, with pathways to meaningful cultural, economic and social inclusion. Therefore, Australian social inclusion, in the pursuit of equal participation and better outcomes for all community members, cannot ignore multiculturalism or treat it as a fringe issue, especially in light of the country's strong immigration program. The BSL believes that multiculturalism must be part of a new social contract that continues to sit alongside the Indigenous policies and applied social inclusion approaches, to inform them and be informed by them.Availability: (1)
