Exploring economism in migration policy and research /

by Boese, Martina | The Australian Sociological Association.

Publisher: unpub. 2009Description: PDF.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: Conference paper presented at The Australian Sociological Association (TASA) Conference. The Future of Sociology. (2009 : Canberra, A.C.T.) INTO AND OUT OF WORKSummary: Stating the need for immigration and pointing to its benefits for the receiving country is a known strategy in political discourse to encourage public support of increased immigration targets or liberalised immigration. The economic benefits of migration have traditionally served as a counterargument against political fears of xenophobia in many European countries, and in Australia, they have helped to replace an immigration policy based on exclusion. Needs and benefits are usually described in relation to the host economy, more specifically the labour market and income through tax. The language of needs and cost-benefits which has become normalised in immigration policy in Australia as well as internationally is however not restricted to the policy sphere. It extends into the area of research on immigration and settlement. ; This paper will first discuss the economic rationales underpinning Australian immigration policy with a particular focus on regional settlement policies before exploring manifestations of economism in analyses of migration and reflecting on implications for the sociological analysis of migration. The paper is based on a literature and policy review for a new Australian Research Council Linkage project on migrants and refugees' settlement in rural and regional Australia.Availability: (1)

Immigrant performance in the labour market : bonding and bridging social capital /

by Lancee, Bram | International Migration, Integration and Social Cohesion in urope IMISCOE Research Network.

Publisher: Amsterdam Amsterdam University Press 2012Description: PDF.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: Includes bibliographical referencesSummary: To what extent can different forms of social capital help immigrants make headway on the labour market? An answer to this pressing question begins here. Taking the Netherlands and Germany as case studies, the book identifies two forms of social capital that may work to increase employment, income and occupational status and, conversely, decrease unemployment. New insights into the concepts of bonding and bridging arise through quantitative research methods, using longitudinal and crosssectional data. Referring to a dense network with ?thick? trust, bonding is measured as family ties, co-ethnic ties and trust in the family. Bridging is seen in terms of interethnic ties, thus implying a crosscutting network with ?thin? trust. Immigrant Performance in the Labour Market reveals that although bonding allows immigrants to get by, bridging enables them to get ahead.Availability: (1)

Immigration : taking a long view /

by Viviani, Nancy | Asialink.

Publisher: Parkville, Vic. Asialink, Sidney Myer Asia Centre, University of Melbourne 2010Description: PDF.Other title: The Asialink Essays 2010 ; volume 2 no. 2.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: Bibliography : p. 9 INTO AND OUT OF WORKSummary: This paper addresses the "Big Country" immigration debate. It argues that we haven't thought enough about the social and economic impact of the latest anticipated increases in immigration, - the "explosive" mix created when a relatively low skilled local population comes under pressure from high levels of more skilled migration. Treasury, Viviani says, thinks it is cheaper to free-ride on the educational investments by other countries in our migrants, while failing to properly build our own skill-levels.Availability: (1)

Migration and development : achieving policy coherence. /

Publisher: Geneva, Switzerland International Organization for Migration 2008Description: PDF.Notes: URL: 'http://www.iom.int/jahia/Jahia/cache/offonce/pid/1674?entryId=19847' Checked: 2/03/2009 9:55:59 AM Status: Live Details: HTTP status 200 - Usual success responseSummary: "Policy coherence between migration and development agendas is of increasing interest in current times; there is growing recognition that migration policies should support rather than hinder investment in international development. The United Nations High-Level Dialogue of September 2006 and the Global Forum on Migration and Development of July 2007 both raised the attention given to this issue. > Now that the interface between migration and development has been recognized, the challenge is to turn this interest into working-level policies and programmes. The aim of this study is to build on existing international research and take the analysis to the next higher level showing how these connections can be made in practice. Policy makers often focus on remittances as the main means of translating the migration-development nexus into reality. However, this paper shows that there are many stages in the migration cycle, from departure to return and reintegration back home, that present opportunities to make migration more development friendly and, conversely, to raise development awareness of migration factors." -- Publisher website.Availability: Items available for loan: Brotherhood of St Laurence (1).

Pathways to employment for migrants and refugees? the case of social enterprise /

by Barraket, Jo.

Publisher: [Auckland, N.Z.] The Australian Sociological Association 2007Description: PDF.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: INTO AND OUT OF WORKSummary: This paper examines the use of social enterprise ? that is, not for personal profit businesses that have a strong social purpose- to support training and employment pathways for migrants and refugees facing multiple forms of exclusion. Drawing on an evaluation of a program that supports seven social enterprises in the Australian state of Victoria, the study finds that social enterprise affords unique local opportunities for economic and social participation for the program?s participants. Nevertheless, there are limits to the impacts of programs that mediate transitions within an increasingly flexible labour market without redressing the broader social determinants of labour market segmentation.Availability: (1)
