by Ibrahim, Hassan | Deakin University. Centre for Citizenship and Globalisation | Sgro, Pasquale | Mansouri, Fethi | Jubb, Christine.

Publisher: Deakin University. Centre for Citizenship and Globalisation 2010Description: PDF.Other title: Citizenship and globalisation research paper ; no. 4 issue.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: December 2010 Includes bibliographical referencesSummary: This paper investigates the patterns of labour market access and the employment outcomes of African refugees in Australia. It focuses on recently-arrived migrants and refugees from Eritrea who came to Australia predominantly on humanitarian grounds. The paper explores the correlation between academic qualifications and previous employment experiences on the one hand and employment outcomes in Australia on the other. In doing so, a number of related factors including language skills, links to community organizations and level and nature of job assistance services are analysed as variables that potentially impact upon access to and ultimately integration into the labour market.Availability: (1)

Migrant women and discrimination in Australia: a tiered narrative study /

by Bamforth, Jill | Deakin University. Centre for Citizenship and Globalisation.

Publisher: Geelong, Vic. Deakin University. Centre for Citizenship and Globalisation March 2011Description: PDF.Other title: Citizenship and globalisation research paper ; volume 2, no. 2.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: December 2010 Includes bibliographical referencesSummary: Whilst media representations of race relations in Australia depict a tolerant multicultural society, official records of discrimination, together with public events concerning migrant women, have combined to unsettle this egalitarian view. This article reports on a tiered study which uses the methods of critical race theory to provide insights into the nature and extent of race and gender discrimination experienced by migrant women in Australia. These insights are derived from a first hand narrative account of one migrant woman's experiences of the rental housing market and legal system, and a comparison of her narrative with those told of the same event by one social work and two legal professionals. The study reveals that, although the migrant woman's legal challenges were successful, she experienced serious reprisals related to these challenges, and was involved in a cycle of housing related difficulties which her legal challenges did not address. The comparison of the accounts shows that the professionals? accounts took either a 'telescopic' or 'panoramic' view of these issues. Whilst the panoramic view resulted in a greater awareness of the social context of the migrant woman's housing and legal difficulties, race and gender discrimination were not always identified. The study concludes that the professional and institutional filtration of discrimination means that the view of multicultural tolerance in Australia remains unchallenged.Availability: (1)

Changing children's chances : can Australia learn from Nordic countries? /

Publisher: Burwood, Vic. Deakin University. Centre for Citizenship and Globalisation 2012Description: 64 p. PDF.Other title: Citizenship and globalisation research papers ; Volume 3.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: July 2012 Includes bibliographical references Michael Horn from the Brotherhood of St Laurence was a contributor to the discussion.Summary: Australia has much higher rates of income poverty and inequalities among children than Sweden and the other main Nordic nations. The aim of this publication is to identify what Australia can learn from the Nordic nations' policies to reduce inequalities, and increase wellbeing, among children. The symposium from which this publication has developed brought together a Nordic expert, and a small number of Australian experts including university academics and professional practitioners from community organisations, to focus on four related policy areas. These were: early, regular monitoring of children's health; enhanced quality and more equitable early childhood education and care (ECEC) through public provision (including the requisite workforce training and capacity); the provision of extensive paid parental leave and family-friendly working hours; and the provision of more employment to reduce joblessness among families with children so as to reduce child poverty. ; Contents: The reasons for looking to the Nordic nations to change children's chances in Australia / Andrew Scott - An overview of Nordic policy for children: Lessons for Australia on how to reduce inequalities/ Staffan Janson - The role of child health systems in reducing inequalities / Sharon Goldfeld - The importance of high quality and accessible early childhood education and care / Deborah Brennan - Paid parental leave as a basic tenet of a child friendly society / Andrew Scott - The central importance of parental employment for reducing child poverty in Australia / Peter Whiteford.Availability: Items available for loan: Brotherhood of St Laurence (1).

Australian Centre on Quality of Life /

Publisher: Melbourne, Vic. Deakin University Notes: Survey Reports: 1 ; 2 ; 3 ; 4 ; 5 ; 6 ; 7 ; 8 ; 9 ; 10 ; 11 ; 12 ; 13 ; 14 ; 15 ; 16 ; 17 ; 18 ; 19 ; 20 ; 21 ; 22 ; 23 ; 24 ; 25 ; 26 ; 27 ; 28 ; 29 ; 30Summary: Quality of life is emerging as a central construct within many disciplines, such as those comprising the social sciences, economics, and medicine. Its attraction, in part, is that it offers an alternative to some traditional disciplinary views about how to measure success. First, it directs attention onto the positive aspects of people's lives, thus running counter to the deficit orientation of these disciplines. Second, it extends the traditional objective measures of health, wealth, and social functioning to include subjective perceptions of wellbeing.Availability: No items available

The survey aims to benchmark attitudes toward racial, ethnic and cultural diversity in Victoria, strengthen understanding of the factors shaping attitudes, and monitor changes in these attitudes over time. It examines public attitudes to tolerance and inclusion, as well as the experience of overt and subtle prejudice. While most respondents hold favourable attitudes, continued effort is needed to promote greater acceptance of cultural diversity and to reduce race-based prejudice in Victoria.Availability: Items available for loan: Brotherhood of St Laurence (1).

Early years transitions : support for children and families at risk of experiencing vulnerability : practice review report

by Nolan, Andrea | Deakin University | Kiderry, Anna | Beahan, Jenni | Lanting, Carole | Speldwinde, Christopher | Victoria. Department of Education and Training.

Publisher: Melbourne, Vic. Department of Education and Training 2017Description: 107 p. PDF.Online Access: DOWNLOAD PDF Notes: March 2017; Authors of the Report : Andrea Nolan, Anna Kilderry, Jenni Beahan, Carole Lanting and Christopher Speldewinde, Deakin UniversitySummary: This final report documents the completion of the Practice Review on support for children and families at risk of experiencing vulnerability in early years transitions for the Victorian Department of Education and Training (DET). The data that has informed this report is state-wide (Victoria). Provided within this report are many encouraging examples of effective and promising practices from Victorian DET regions across the State informed by the accounts of those involved. While the data is not exhaustive, it showcases and illustrates many promising transition practices happening throughout Victoria. A rapid literature review, commissioned by DET and conducted by Australian Council for Educational Research (ACER) and the Brotherhood of St Laurence (Kochanoff, Krakouer, Mitchell & Trevitt, 2016), informed the methodology and findings of this report. Information for the Practice Review was collected and collated from participants from across the early years sector, including from ECEC professionals representing kindergartens, family day care, long day care and Out of School Hours Care, and preschool field officers, school staff including principals, assistant principals, teachers, and school support officers. Participants were also recruited from professional support organisations, support programs and policy staff from the Department of Education and Training, including Best Start Facilitators, Maternal and Child Health Services, Department of Health and Human Services, and Local Government Areas (LGAs). This breadth of information has enabled carefully considered options to be developed, with the aim to assist with charting directions forward to ensure that key stakeholders improve early years transition practices for children and families experiencing vulnerability.
