Ensuring labour market success for ethnic minority and immigrant youth /

by Froy, Francesca | Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development. ocal Economic and Employment Development (LEED) Programme | Pyne, Lucy.

Publisher: Paris, France OECD Publishing 2011Description: PDF.Other title: OECD Local Economic and Employment Development (LEED)..Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: June 2011 Bibliography : p. 83-88Summary: The labour market integration of young people from ethnic minority and immigrant backgrounds is one of those issues which government finds it a challenge to address, particularly in the current climate of growing youth unemployment. 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)

How does freedom of religion and belief affect health and wellbeing? /

by Klocker, Natascha | VicHealth | Trenerry, Brigid | Webster, Kim.

Publisher: Carlton, Vic. VicHealth 2011Description: PDF.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: March 2011 Bibliography pp. 97-100 Appendices pp. 101-119Summary: This report presents the findings of an evidence review prepared by Dr Natascha Klocker, Brigid Trenerry and Kim Webster for VicHealth, which explores the relationship between freedom of religion and belief, and health and well being. As Australia has become increasingly culturally diverse, there has also been an increase in religious diversity. The report provides evidence that religion and belief, religious discrimination and race-based discrimination all impact on health in various ways. Although there is strong evidence of a range of positive mental health outcomes, the relationship between religion/belief and physical health is less clear. Despite some shortcomings in the literature reviewed, it has been possible to conclude that individuals of faith who experience religious freedom have the potential to experience a range of positive health effects that may be associated with their religion/belief.Availability: (1)

Identity economics : how our identities shape our work, wages, and well-being /

by Akerlof, George A | Kranton, Rachel E.

Publisher: Princeton, NJ Princeton University Press 2010Description: vi, 185 p. : ill. ; 25 cm.Notes: Includes bibliographical references and index. Contents: Introduction - Identity economics - Identity and norms in utility - Where we fit into today's economics - Identity and the economics of organizations - Identity and the economics of education - Gender and work - Race and minority poverty - Identity economics and economic methodology - Conclusion, and five ways identity changes economics.Summary: Identity Economics provides an important and compelling new way to understand human behavior, revealing how our identities--and not just economic incentives--influence our decisions. In 1995, economist Rachel Kranton wrote future Nobel Prize-winner George Akerlof a letter insisting that his most recent paper was wrong. Identity, she argued, was the missing element that would help to explain why people--facing the same economic circumstances--would make different choices. This was the beginning of a fourteen-year collaboration--and of Identity Economics.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).
