Refugees and regional settlement : balancing priorities : summary /

by Taylor, Janet | Brotherhood of St Laurence.

Publisher: Fitzroy, Vic. Brotherhood of St Laurence 2007Description: 5 p.Other title: Cultural Diversity and Social Harmony Conference : The.Online Access: DOWNLOAD PDF Notes: September 2007 Includes bibliographical references "Cultural Diversity and Social Harmony Conference : The Goulburn Valley Experience, 26th & 27th September 2007, Eastbank Centre, Shepparton, Victoria." "Full report Refugees and regional settlement : balancing priorities (Taylor & Stanovic 2005) available at the Brotherhood library."Summary: "Refugees have become one distinctive face of social exclusion at the beginning of the 21st century. Australia's response to people seeking refuge is an indicator of progress made towards the inclusive and compassionate society which is the vision of the Brotherhood of St Laurence. Part of the Brotherhood's research has been to explore different ways of thinking about the definitions and measurement of disadvantage and to draw attention to the experience of groups who are unable to participate fully in Australian society. The research informing this report develops our work in applying a social exclusion framework (examining resources, relationships and rights)in this instance to an analysis of the settlement experience of refugees in regional Victoria. Promoting refugees' inclusion by linking them to the workforce and development needs of various regions in Victoria is a policy solution with considerable appeal to governments. But will the refugees find work and be made welcome in Victoria's country towns? This report examines the refugee settlement experience in Shepparton, Colac and Warrnambool. Taylor and Stanovic's richly layered account shows that policy planners contemplating future settlements need to think not only about the usual range of issues that migrants encounter regarding employment, housing, income and language, but also about concerns specific to refugees. ; The report also highlights two other aspects of the Brotherhood's vision of an inclusive society. First, it shows the need for careful planning of joined-up services, with the participation of refugee communities. Governments must act to ensure that the necessary community capacity is in place. Second, it demonstrates the need to invest in social programs in tandem with planning economic development, to ensure the employment and learning opportunities which are ultimately vital to social inclusion." -- Forward by Paul SmythAvailability: Items available for loan: BSL Archives (1).
