Love thy neighbours : racial tolerance among young Australians. /

by Thomas, Trang | Witenberg, Rivka.

Publisher: Melbourne, Vic. Royal Melbourne Institute of Technology 2004Description: 49 p.Online Access: DOWNLOAD PDF Notes: A report for the Australian Multicultural Foundation Summary: "Racial prejudice can lead to friction, disharmony and even physical violence. It is a major social problem in many societies and one from which Australia is not immune. However, evidence is accumulating that living in harmony may be better served by increasing understanding about tolerance and acceptance rather than focusing on decreasing prejudice. > > The Australian Research Council and the Australian Multicultural Foundation funded this project, which aimed to study racial tolerance among young Australians. The value of the current study was its focus on the positive aspects of social perceptions and behaviours in contrast to the large body of research into the negative aspects of prejudice. > > The study used three short dilemma-like stories to assess tolerance. Each story dealt with an event depicting a form of intolerance / tolerance relevant to the Australian context (Aboriginal, Asian and English people). > > The outcomes of the project examine how age, gender and situational and behavioural contexts influence racial tolerant judgements. It also examines the kind of justifications young people used to support tolerance and intolerance. Participants were children (aged 11 to 12), young adolescents (aged 14 to 15) and young adults (aged 16 to 22). They were asked to make judgements and justify them on two aspects. First, to whom and under what circumstances were they willing to extend their tolerance. Second, whether they were tolerant of people's beliefs, speech or actions within each story."

Three cups of tea : one man's extraordinary journey to promote peace ... one school at a time /

by Mortenson, Greg | Relin, David Oliver.

Publisher: London, U.K. Penguin 2007Description: 349 p.: ill.Summary: 'Here we drink three cups of tea to do business; the first you are a stranger, the second you become a friend, and the third, you join our family, and for our family we are prepared to do anything - even die' - Haji Ali, Korphe Village Chief, Karakoram mountains, Pakistan. In 1993, after a terrifying and disastrous attempt to climb K2, a mountaineer called Greg Mortenson drifted, cold and dehydrated, into an impoverished Pakistan village in the Karakoram Mountains. Moved by the inhabitants' kindness, he promised to return and build a school. "Three Cups of Tea" is the story of that promise and its extraordinary outcome. Over the next decade Mortenson built not just one but fifty-five schools - especially for girls - in remote villages across the forbidding and breathtaking landscape of Pakistan and Afghanistan, just as the Taliban rose to power. His story is at once a riveting adventure and a testament to the power of the humanitarian spirit.Availability: Items available for loan: Brotherhood of St Laurence (1).
