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)

People like us : how arrogance is dividing Islam and the West. /

by Aly, Waleed.

Publisher: Sydney, N.S.W. Picador 2007Description: xx, 277 p.Summary: "No two civilisations have spoken so many words about each other in recent years as those of Islam and the West. And no two seem to have communicated less. As a Muslim born and raised in Australia, Waleed Aly stands at the intersection of these two civilisations. From there he sees a world of radical misunderstandings, perpetuated by the inability of each to look beyond the stereotypes and truly comprehend the other. People Like Us examines the cultural chasm between Islam and the West by confronting the issues at the heart of the misunderstanding: women, jihad, secularism, terrorism, Reformation and modernity. Drawing on the author's knowledge of Western and Islamic intellectual traditions, it provides a fascinating analysis of these subjects, exposing the depth of ignorance surrounding them and the role of both Muslim and Western media in reinforcing stereotypes. Above all, it argues that the only way to avoid perpetual and escalating conflict between Islam and the West is to acknowledge one indisputable and powerful truth: that we are all complex, nuanced people. We must resist the mutual temptation to assume that the other's problems could be solved if only they became more like us. This is a brave and provocative book of rare insight, and an indispensable contribution to understanding our troubled world." -- Publisher's websiteAvailability: Items available for loan: Brotherhood of St Laurence (1).

Perceptions and labor market outcomes of immigrants in Australia after 9/11 /

by Goel, Deepti.

Publisher: Bonn, Germany Institute for the Study of Labour 2009Description: PDF.Online Access: Electronic copy Summary: I examine whether after the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001 Muslim immigrants and immigrants who fit the Muslim Arab stereotype in Australia perceive a greater increase in religious and racial intolerance and discrimination compared to other immigrant groups. I also examine whether there is a differential change in their labor market outcomes. I find that after 9/11 there is a greater increase in the likelihood of Muslim men and of those who look like Muslims to report a lot of religious and racial intolerance and discrimination relative to other immigrants. Further, I do not find evidence that after 9/11 Muslims or their stereotypes show a differential change in the likelihood of looking for a new main job or of being employed. There is also no evidence of a differential change in hours worked or in wage incomes. This suggests that the Australian labor market did not react to attitudinal changes in society, at least in the immediate aftermath of 9/11.Availability: Items available for loan: Brotherhood of St Laurence (1).

Race, faith and gender : converging discriminations against Muslim women in Victoria : the ongoing impact of September 11, 2001 /

by Islamic Women's Welfare Council of Victoria.

Publisher: Northcote, Vic. Islamic Women's Welfare Council of Victoria 2008Description: PDF.Online Access: Electronic copy Summary: The experiences of Muslim women in Victoria after September 11 documented in this research demonstrate that instances of racism are not simply isolated, one-off incidents. Racism against Muslim women has a pervasive and persistent cyclical pattern, characterised by quiet periods of everyday racisms and incivility, which are interrupted by sharp rises in racism after international incidents of Muslim-related terrorism. This research demonstrated that non-Muslim Victorians' perceptions of Muslims in general, and Muslim women in particular, are complex but nonetheless inextricably tied to Muslim women?s experiences of racism. What non-Muslim Victorians think of Muslim women affects these women?s lives and their potential for integration. It is important to note that, at least for Muslim women who participated in this study, it was the fear of racism and not their mistreatment by their society or religion that restricted their freedom and independence. Our research confirmed that non-Muslim Victorians and Muslim women feel a growing divide in relations between Muslims and non-Muslims. Muslim women feel it through a growing sense of marginalisation and non-Muslim Victorians feel it in the unfair treatment they perceive Muslims to receive. For Victorians on both sides of the divide, there is a strong desire for contact and exchange of ideas, information and common experiences.Availability: (1)

The Australian journey : Muslim communities. /

by Australia. Department of Immigration and Citizenship.

Publisher: Canberra, A.C.T. The Department 2009Description: 88 p.: ill., photos.Online Access: Electronic copy Summary: The Australian Journey : Muslim communities is characterised by contributions of people from all over the world who have made Australia home. Today there are more than 22 million Australians. We speak over 300 languages, including Indigenous languages, identify with more than 200 ancestries and observe a wide variety of cultural and religious traditions. In Australia people of all cultures and religions are able to express their beliefs and practise their religion without intimidation and without interference. Muslims were some of the very first visitors to our shores and have helped to build our country into the prosperous and successful nation it is today. Many have chosen to live in Australia for the sake of their children, for education opportunities and for a better life. They bring with them a wealth of different ideas, skills and talents. This publication recognises the diversity of Australia's Muslim communities and celebrates the important role many have played in Australia's past and present and will continue to play in the future. The photographs feature some successful Muslims in Australia and their thoughts about what it means to be both a Muslim and an Australian. As we journey further into the 21st century, Australia continues to prosper thanks to its vibrant mix of people committed to their country and culture.Availability: (1)
