Double disempowerment /

by Deasey, Mark | Ecumenical Migration Centre.

Publisher: Fitzroy, Vic. Clearing House on Migration Issues (CHOMI) n.dDescription: PDF.Other title: Policy action papers for a multicultural society ; no. 4.Online Access: Electronic copy Summary: This Policy Action Paper is a slightly modified version of the final project report presented to Community Services Victoria. In its substance, conclusions and recommendations it is the fruit of not only the the Poverty Action Project as such, but of the work and observations of several EMC staff over several years. That period has seen several shifts in government policy towards non-English speaking background Australians, and changes in fashion of social welfare theory and service provision. Throughout it all, the lot of the most marginalised and disenfranchised has hardly improved. While we feel that the general shift in policy and theory towards and empowerment and mainstreaming of service provision is correct, this report aims to show up some of the cracks in the practice, and the short-sightedness of applying one theoretical model across the board.Availability: (1)

Supporting access to the labour market for all young people is typically a multifaceted issue, with both social and economic dimensions. In the case of immigrants and minority groups, it is no easier as it involves working with different cultures, traditions and customs, and in some cases, tackling intergenerational problems of exclusion.

In fact, the stakeholders involved are many, drawn from the public service, the private sector and civil society...ForewordAvailability: (1)
