This book engages with these debates, examining the tangible outcomes of multiculturalism as a policy and philosophy in a range of traditional and 'newer' multi-ethnic nations. Exploring the questions of whether multiculturalism can promote 'ethnic harmony', employment equity and trust between various minority and non-minority groups, Managing Ethnic Diversity also adopts a comparative perspective on the experiences of multiculturalism in various international contexts, in order to examine whether lessons learned from some jurisdictions can be applied to others.Availability: Items available for loan: Brotherhood of St Laurence (1).

Maximising the Development Outcomes of Migration : a policy perspective /

by Chappell, Laura | Glennie, Alex.

Publisher: London, U.K. Institute for Public Policy Research 2009Online Access: Electronic copy Summary: It is becoming increasingly clear that migration can have important impacts upon development. As a result, policymakers are searching for ways to increase migration’s developmental benefits, and decrease its costs. But what are the levers for doing so? ; Some of the earliest efforts to maximise the development impacts of migration focused on migration policy, and specifically on opening up more channels for developing country citizens to move into higher wage labour markets. The hope was that this would maximise remittances, thereby promoting development. However, this strategy has come up against a number of problems. ; This paper maps and explores the policy territory for improving migration’s development impacts, including but also going beyond migration policy and development policy. We set out what areas of policy this might contain, as well as some practical examples of where such policies have been put in place and their effects. As a result, we hope to increase awareness of the number of levers available to policymakers to maximise migration’s benefits and minimise its costs; as well as providing a more systematic approach to considering policy in this area to help others identify more levers in the future.Availability: Items available for loan: Brotherhood of St Laurence (1).

Maximising the positive economic, social and cultural impacts of migration : submission to the Inquiry into Multiculturalism in Australia / BSL

by Brotherhood of St Laurence | Greco, Sarina.

Publisher: Fitzroy, Vic. Brotherhood of St Laurence 2011Description: 18 p. PDF.Other title: Brotherhood of St Laurence submission to the Inquiry into Multiculturalism in Australia.Online Access: Electronic copy Summary: Australia's history confirms that we need a holistic social policy framework for all citizens, with pathways to meaningful cultural, economic and social inclusion. Therefore, Australian social inclusion, in the pursuit of equal participation and better outcomes for all community members, cannot ignore multiculturalism or treat it as a fringe issue, especially in light of the country's strong immigration program. The BSL believes that multiculturalism must be part of a new social contract that continues to sit alongside the Indigenous policies and applied social inclusion approaches, to inform them and be informed by them.Availability: (1)
