Exploring economism in migration policy and research /

by Boese, Martina | The Australian Sociological Association.

Publisher: unpub. 2009Description: PDF.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: Conference paper presented at The Australian Sociological Association (TASA) Conference. The Future of Sociology. (2009 : Canberra, A.C.T.) INTO AND OUT OF WORKSummary: Stating the need for immigration and pointing to its benefits for the receiving country is a known strategy in political discourse to encourage public support of increased immigration targets or liberalised immigration. The economic benefits of migration have traditionally served as a counterargument against political fears of xenophobia in many European countries, and in Australia, they have helped to replace an immigration policy based on exclusion. Needs and benefits are usually described in relation to the host economy, more specifically the labour market and income through tax. The language of needs and cost-benefits which has become normalised in immigration policy in Australia as well as internationally is however not restricted to the policy sphere. It extends into the area of research on immigration and settlement. ; This paper will first discuss the economic rationales underpinning Australian immigration policy with a particular focus on regional settlement policies before exploring manifestations of economism in analyses of migration and reflecting on implications for the sociological analysis of migration. The paper is based on a literature and policy review for a new Australian Research Council Linkage project on migrants and refugees' settlement in rural and regional Australia.Availability: (1)

Indigenous participation in regional labour markets, 2001-06 . /

by Biddle, Nic | Centre for Aboriginal Economic Policy Research. Australian ational University | Taylor, John | Yap, Mandy.

Publisher: Canberra, A.C.T. Centre for Aboriginal Economic Policy Research. Australian National University 2008Description: PDF.Notes: INTO AND OUT OF WORKSummary: "This paper examines the extent to which Indigenous Australians have shared in the large expansion of the Australian workforce that is revealed by a comparison of 2001 and 2006 census results. It considers whether this is reflected in changes to regional patterns of Indigenous labour force status, income, occupation and industry of employment. As such, it provides the first comprehensive assessment of possible impacts of federal Indigenous employment policies introduced just prior to the 2001 Census and it contributes to the policy discourse on closing the gap between Indigenous and other Australians. Conventional census measures of labour force status are established for each of 37 Indigenous Regions and administrative data are also deployed to produce a more accurate picture of the spread of CDEP program employment and the effect of this on labour force outcomes. Changes in occupational and industry segregation are established as is the effect of employment change on the gap in median incomes. In line with previous gap analyses conducted by CAEPR an attempt is made to estimate future job requirements using a projection of the Indigenous working-age population to 2016. This reveals a need for more than 70,000 additional jobs to meet current government targets." -- CAEPR.Availability: Items available for loan: Brotherhood of St Laurence (1).
