A bridge between two worlds : leadership among resettled Sudanese youth in an American city /

by Gale, Lacey | United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees.

Publisher: Geneva, Switzerland United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees 2011Description: PDF.Other title: New issues in refugee research. Research paper ; no. 211.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: June 2011 Bibliography pp. 22-26Summary: Humanitarian efforts are often focused on children in conflict, since the international legal definitions create a practical framework for addressing child-specific needs. Youth have different needs than children, however, and possess more potential to influence both the society around them and their home communities. Resettled youth face multiple transitions simultaneously, from conflict to third country resettlement and from child to adult. Their needs include not only the legal aspects of protection, but also the social and economic aspects, noted in UNHCR's Age, Gender and Diversity Mainstreaming strategy as the spheres in which most rights violations of persons of concern occur. The goal of this case study is to map resettled refugee youth participation and leadership in a particular context and to discuss how these findings apply to a broader humanitarian youth agenda. It became apparent over the course of this project that UNHCR is in the process of defining a discrete policy for youth. This case study identifies a cohort of young leaders in Maine who, along with their peers in the United States as well as other resettlement countries, have the potential to contribute to the formulation of UNHCR's policy on youth.Availability: (1)

Amplifying the voices of young refugees. /

by Refugee Council of Australia.

Publisher: Sydney, [N.S.W.] Refugee Council of Australia 2009Description: 26 p.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: Abridged report 2009 Report coordinator: Louise Olliff. Settlement Policy OfficerSummary: During 2008-09, the Refugee Council of Australia (RCOA) undertook a literature review and a series of youth consultations across three Australian states and the Australian Capital Territory, with the aim of developing a targeted and informed strategy for the ongoing engagement of refugee young people in advocating to have their needs and concerns addressed and ideas recognised at a national level. People aged less than 30 years on arrival now comprise the significant majority and a growing proportion of new arrivals to Australia under the Refugee and Humanitarian Program. This project is premised upon the belief that amplification of the voices of young refugees and humanitarian entrants within national forums, such as RCOA's own annual community consultations, will facilitate the development of advocacy strategies, policy recommendations and project initiatives that are informed by and responsive to the priorities of a key and currently underheard population. RCOA believes that this will in turn lead to the development of more sensitive public policies to address their concerns, while also positively influencing broader community understandings of the experiences and contributions of young refugees.Availability: (1)

Crime prevention programs for culturally and linguistically diverse communities in Australia /

by Bartels, Lorana | Criminology Research Council.

Publisher: Canberra, A.C.T. Australian Institute of Criminology 2011Description: PDF.Other title: Research in practice report ; no. 18.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: June 2011 Bibliography pp. 13-14Summary: It is generally recognised that people from culturally and linguistically diverse (CALD) communities may face a range of complex issues, including discrimination and prejudice, social isolation and disenfranchisement, and difficulties in assimilating within the broader Australian culture and/or in maintaining a sense of identification with the culture of origin. In addition, refugees or people who have migrated to Australia as a result of adversity may be suffering from undiagnosed or untreated trauma. All of these factors may impact on involvement in and engagement with the criminal justice system. In this paper, the key criminal justice issues in relation to CALD communities are reviewed and a summary of relevant protective and risk factors provided. Some CALD-specific crime prevention programs, which serve to promote resiliency and protective factors and/or inhibit risk factors, are then presented. In order to ensure relevance and currency, the paper is primarily limited to Australian research from 2006 onwards.Availability: (1)

However, mentoring service providers and policy makers may not be equipped to effectively meet the needs of young people from the Horn of Africa, given that they are a recently emerging CALD group in Australia." -- Executive summaryAvailability: Items available for loan: Brotherhood of St Laurence (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. Unsurprisingly, more than one government department or agency is involved in this policy area. In fact, the stakeholders involved are many, drawn from the public service, the private sector and civil society...ForewordAvailability: (1)
