Migrant Resource Centres : an initial assessment /

by Tacon, Paul | International Organization for Migration | Warn, Elizabeth.

Publisher: Geneva, Switzerland International Organization for Migration 2009Description: 71 p.: ill.Other title: Migration research series no. 40.Online Access: Electronic copy Summary: While there has been significant growth in the number of Migrant Resource Centres (MRCs) in recent years, there has been no attempt to date to examine the impact of these centres on migration management goals. This study aims to help bridge the gap by providing an overview of good practices employed by MRCs to help migrants move to their destinations in a legal, voluntary, orderly and protected manner. This assessment covers the work of 17 MRCs in Albania, Australia, Colombia, Croatia, the Democratic Republic of the Congo, Lebanon, Mali, the Philippines, Portugal, Slovakia, Sri Lanka and Tajikistan. It focuses on the role of MRCs in empowering migrants for development and self-protection. The assessment also covers MRCs' strategies for ensuring their smooth operation and long-term sustainability. The study shows that MRCs are increasingly working to build the capacities of migrants to contribute to country-of-origin development. Efforts by MRCs to facilitate low-cost remittance transfers, offer investment advice and assist migrants in their search for appropriate jobs support this goal. In addition, MRCs are also actively helping migrants to protect themselves, by providing information on migrant rights, the risks and consequences of migration and related laws and procedures, as well as legal counselling, disputeresolution assistance and referrals to health and other social services.Availability: (1)

Mind Matters : the mental health and wellbeing of young people from diverse cultural backgrounds /

by Centre for Multicultural Youth.

Publisher: Carlton, Vic. Centre for Multicultural Youth 2014Description: PDF.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: February 2014 Policy PaperSummary: Mental health is the major health issue facing young Australians. Overall mental health and substance abuse disorders account for 60-70% of the disease burden among 15-24 year olds in Australia. There has been a broad recognition amongst service providers and governments at a range of levels, that despite the quality services provided by the specialist mental health sector and many universal services, services are not in general responding widely and early enough to mental health problems in children and young people. There are strong indication of significant under-reporting of mental health concerns and low rates of professional help seeking amongst multicultural young people. The current review of Victoria's mental health system provides an important opportunity to ensure that multicultural youth mental health concerns are given particular consideration.Availability: (1)

Publisher: Canberra, A.C.T. ANU E Press 2011Description: xxiii, 228 p. : ill.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: Includes bibliographical references and index.Summary: Multiculturalism has been the official policy of all Australian governments (Commonwealth and State) since the 1970s. It has recently been criticised, both in Australia and elsewhere. Integration has been suggested as a better term and policy. Critics suggest it is a reversion to assimilation.
