Publisher: BrisbaneCOTA Over 50s - Council on the Ageing 2009Description: PDF.Notes: URL: 'http://cotaover50s.org.au/e107_files/COTA_documents/ageism.pdf' Checked: 2/06/2009 11:32:56 AM Status: Live Details: HTTP status 200 - Usual success response Retirement & ageingSummary: This study draws attention to ageist stereotypes and assumptions of older people held by professionals involved in the policy, design and planning of the built environment, in particular residential complexes. Data was collected as part of a larger study concerned with the growth in specialised spaces for older people segregated from the community. The first stage of the study explored the views and experiences of professionals through interviews and working documents. Analysis revealed policy and practice was underpinned by ageist assumptions. These findings provide evidence of the pervasive nature of ageism in our society and how it is inextricably linked to purpose built housing for older people. Indeed the built environment can be seen to be both as a cause and effect of ageism.Availability: Items available for loan: Brotherhood of St Laurence (1).

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)
