Rethinking the design of Indigenous organisations . /

by Martin, David.

Publisher: Canberra, A.C.T. Centre for Aboriginal Economic Policy Research. Australian National University 2003Notes: URL: '' Checked: 2/03/2009 9:44:10 AM Status: Live Details: HTTP status 200 - Usual success responseSummary: In this paper the author argues that a fundamental issue confronting Australian Indigenous groups and communities is how to develop the capacity to engage strategically with the general Australian society, in particular with its political and economic dimensions. Strategic engagement refers to the processes, not outcomes, through which Indigenous individuals, groups and communities interact with the formal and informal institutions of the dominant Australian society in a manner that provides them with real choices. Institutions for more effective governance must draw from Indigenous values and practices, from those of the general Australian society, and from relevant international experience.Availability: Items available for loan: Brotherhood of St Laurence (1).

Creating learning spaces for refugees : the role of multicultural organisations in Australia /​ Beatriz Miralles-Lombardo, Judith Miralles, Barry Golding.

by Miralles-Lombardo, Beatriz | National Centre for Vocational Education Research | Miralles, Judith | Golding, Barry | Australia. Department of Education, Employment and Workplace Relations.

Publisher: Adelaide, S.A. National Centre for Vocational Education Research 2008Description: 50 p. : ill. PDF.Online Access: Report | Support document Notes: Includes PDF link to "Creating learning spaces for refugees : the role of multicultural organisations in Australia —support document" by Beatriz Miralles-Lombardo ; Judith Miralles ; Barry Golding, pp. 30 ; "An Adult Literacy National Project report."--Cover. "Department of Education, Employment and Workplace Relations."--T.p. verso.Summary: Upon arrival in Australia, refugees are directed to various organisations, including multicultural community organisations. Multicultural community organisations are well recognised for helping refugees become self-reliant; what is not fully recognised, however, is the contribution these organisations make to the development of refugees’ learning. This study sought to examine the extent to which literacy and numeracy provision occurs in multicultural community organisations serving three particular refugee groups: those from Iraq, Bosnia-Herzegovina and Sudan. Given their diverse experiences, backgrounds and reasons for fleeing their homelands, refugees in Australia clearly have a range of different needs. The authors highlight that multicultural community organisations work to meet these needs by creating networks and relationships with refugees. The nature of these organisations, and the informal learning environment they provide, can help refugees to learn skills needed for life in Australia as well as build networks with other non-government and government organisations.

Strategic issues for the not for profit sector /

by Barraket, Jo (ed.).

Publisher: Sydney, N.S.W. UNSW Press 2008Description: ix, 291p. : ill., tables.Notes: See: Chapter 9. The role of the community sector in Australian welfare: A Brotherhood of St Laurence perspective by Paul Smyth. (General Manager, Research & Policy, Brotherhood of St Laurence 2002-2013.), pp. 212-235.Summary: "Bringing together some of Australia s leading and emerging researchers studying different aspects of the not-for-profit (NFP) sector, Strategic Issues in the Not-for-Profit Sector draws on original Australian and comparative research to provide a spirited exploration of strategic issues facing NFP organisations. A diverse, vital and ever-growing sector in Australia, the NFP sector provides the organisational framework through which many of the most disadvantaged in the community receive access to services and support. However, pressures such as a changing composition, an erosion of financial sustainability, the need to professionalise, and demographic trends affecting patterns of volunteering have put pressure on the NFP sector to innovate and grow in new directions. Strategic Issues in the Not-for-Profit Sector considers the local and global drivers of change, as well as the industry, policy and community imperatives impacting upon NFP sustainability, providing a unique insight into not only the strategic issues, but also strategic responses emerging within the sector." -- Publisher websiteAvailability: Items available for loan: Brotherhood of St Laurence (1).
