This book engages with these debates, examining the tangible outcomes of multiculturalism as a policy and philosophy in a range of traditional and 'newer' multi-ethnic nations. Exploring the questions of whether multiculturalism can promote 'ethnic harmony', employment equity and trust between various minority and non-minority groups, Managing Ethnic Diversity also adopts a comparative perspective on the experiences of multiculturalism in various international contexts, in order to examine whether lessons learned from some jurisdictions can be applied to others.Availability: Items available for loan: Brotherhood of St Laurence (1).

Governing social protection in the long term : social policy and employment relations in Australia and New Zealand / Gaby Ramia. Palgrave Macmillan [Full text - open access]

by Ramia, Gaby [author.].

Publisher: Cham : Palgrave Macmillan, 2020Description: xi, 281 p. PDF.Online Access: DOWNLOAD PDF Summary: This open access book examines the comparative evolution of social protection in Australia and New Zealand from 1890 to the present day, focusing on the relationship between employment relations and social policy. Utilising longstanding and more recent developments in historical institutionalist methodology, Ramia investigates the relationship between these two policy domains in the context of social protection theory. He argues that treating employment relations as dynamic, and as inextricably intertwined with changes in the welfare state over time, allows for more accurate portrayal of similarity and difference in social protection.Availability: Items available for loan: Brotherhood of St Laurence (1).
