Australian Research Alliance for Children and Youth 2008Description: PDF.Notes: Family & early yearsSummary: "This paper reports on research (both primary research and a literature review), undertaken with the aim of demonstrating strategies for successful inclusion into Australian society of children and families from culturally and linguistically different (CaLD) backgrounds. We recognise that CaLD children and families are commonly disadvantaged through being part of a minority group in Australia, their experiences prior to migration (for example refugee trauma), the different values and practices they may encounter here, the difficulty of learning a new language, the problems they face having qualifications and experience ratified, and the varying forms of racism the may experience. A number of innovative and highly successful programmes operate in different areas of Australia that are very successful in supporting CaLD families." -- Summary. ; CULTURALLY AND LINGUISTICALLY DIVERSE (CALD)Availability: Items available for loan: Brotherhood of St Laurence (1).

Australians against racism. /

by Australians Against Racism.

Publisher: 10/14/2003 18:13:02http://www.australiansagainstracism.org/ 11/26/2004Notes: Description based on contents viewed : 10/14/2003 18:13:02 Mode of access : WORLD WIDE WEB ONLINE RESOURCESummary: Australians Against Racism was founded in October 2001 with the aim of countering destructive stereotyping of race and culture by actively promoting understanding and debate through the media, arts, education and the law. AAR was established against a background of increasing hostility in Australia towards people fleeing persecution and seeking the basic human right of asylum. By October 2001 the abuse of people arriving as refugees and those already held in detention centres was entrenched and had bipartisan support in Government. Many Australian people have come to accept and endorse a system that strips refugees and asylum seekers of their rights, including the right to speak out a system that is maintained through misinformation, secrecy and the exploitation of Australians fears.Availability: Items available for loan: Brotherhood of St Laurence (1).

Building on Our Strengths : a framework to reduce race-based discrimination and support diversity in Victoria. Summary report /

by Victorian Health Promotion Foundation.

Publisher: Carlton, Vic. Victorian Health Promotion Foundation 2009Description: 56 p. : col. ill. ; 30 cm.Other title: Building on our strengths : summary report.Online Access: DOWNLOAD PDF Notes: "Addressing the social and economic determinants of mental and physical health" Victorian Health Promotion Foundation commonly known as VicHealth Full report only available online. Includes bibliography.Summary: Building on our strengths: a framework to reduce race-based discrimination and support diversity in Victoria has been developed through a partnership between the Victorian Health Promotion Foundation (VicHealth), the Victorian Equal Opportunity and Human Rights Commission, the McCaughey Centre: VicHealth Centre for the Promotion of Mental Health and Community Wellbeing and the Onemda VicHealth Koori Health Unit. The McCaughey Centre and Onemda are both in the School of Population Health at the University of Melbourne. ; Drawing on the best available evidence in Australia and internationally, this report outlines themes, strategies and priority settings for the development and implementation of activity to reduce race-based discrimination and support diversity. Although recognising that discrimination has a specific meaning in law, this report takes a broader approach, being concerned with behaviours and practices that result in avoidable and unfair inequalities across groups in society based on race, ethnicity, culture or religion. ; Despite widespread support for diversity among Victorians, the data presented in this report indicate that race-based discrimination remains unacceptably high. These findings are of particular concern given increasing evidence that race-based discrimination impacts negatively on both individuals and the community. This includes evidence of links with ill-health and reduced productivity, social inclusion and community cohesion. Reducing race-based discrimination will be critical if the Victorian and Australian governments are to meet their commitments to achieve equitable health for all Australians and, in particular, to eliminate the gaps in health, social and economic status between people from Indigenous and non-indigenous backgrounds. ; Building on our strengths is driven by the goal of achieving sustainable reductions in race-based discrimination, with associated medium- and long-term benefits to individuals, organisations, communities and society. It is intended for broad usage across government, corporate, non-government and community sectors as a useful resource in policy and program development, implementation and evaluation.

Impact of racism on Indigenous health in Australia and Aotearoa : towards a research agenda. /

by Paradies, Yin | Harris, Ricci | Anderson, Ian.

Publisher: Canberra, A.C.T. Cooperative Research Centre for Aboriginal Health 2008Description: PDF.Summary: "It is well established that Indigenous Australians1 and Maori have higher levels of ill health and mortality than ; non-Indigenous people. It is also clear that the disadvantage suffered by Indigenous peoples2 is associated with ; both historical and contemporary racism, colonisation and oppression. Both an ‘adequate state of health’ and ; ‘freedom from racism’ are rights enshrined in legislation in Australia and Aotearoa (New Zealand).3 Although ; several recent national and international reports have shown a link between racism and public health, there is ; little research on this topic in Australia or Aotearoa ... ; This discussion paper highlights the vital importance of sound research in endeavours to combat racism as a ; threat to Indigenous health in Australia and Aotearoa. We hope that this paper will act as an impetus to policy ; and decision-makers at the national, regional and local levels to engage in efforts to combat racism against ; Indigenous peoples as a public health intervention." -- Executive summary.Availability: Items available for loan: Brotherhood of St Laurence (1).
