Building on social cohesion, harmony and security : an action plan /

by Muslim Community Reference Group.

Publisher: Canberra, A.C.T. Muslim Community Reference Group 2006Description: PDF.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: September 2006 Dr Ameer Ali (Chair)Summary: During the last twelve months, the Muslim Community Reference Group (MCRG) and its Sub-Groups formed recommendations and proposals to the Australian Government that aim to create a more inclusive Australia in which people are less likely to be isolated and marginalised and possibly attracted to rigid and antisocial thinking that can lead to destructive activity. More than 40 projects were proposed by the MCRG and its Sub-Groups for consideration in the development and implementation of the National Action Plan to Build on Social Cohesion, Harmony and Security (the National Action Plan). The social isolation facing many Australian Muslims, particularly the young, both at school and in the community, will be challenged by promoting interfaith and intercultural cooperation through school education, redesigned school curricula, sport, mentoring and volunteering. Research into education and employment will examine how Australia's education and employment systems encourage integration and where they fall short. Muslim youth will be assisted into the labour market with improved access to employment service providers and government services.Availability: (1)

Us and them : interfaith relations and cultural harmony in Australia /

by Ata, Abe W.

Publisher: Bowen Hills, Qld. Australian Academic Press 2009Description: viii, 178 p.: ill. graphs.Other title: Us and them: Muslim-Christian relations and cultural harmony.Summary: Cross-cultural research provides exceptional insights into the hopes and fears of dealing with people different to ourselves. In Australia, such research suggests that Australian Muslims have surpassed Asians as one of the country's most marginalised religious and ethnic groups. Muslims and people from the Middle East are thought to be unable to fit into Australia, with more than 50% of Australians preferring their relatives did not to marry into a Muslim family. Yet this statistic masks diverse interpretations of interfaith relations and cultural harmony present across Australia today. In 12 essays Us and Them offers truths about interfaith relations as they are believed and expressed by Muslim and non-Muslim Australians. The essays are interdisciplinary and varied in topic, and seek to challenge the images of Islam held by both xenophobic Westerners and extremist Muslims. Drawn from a variety of research projects over past years, including results from a national survey on attitudes towards Islam and Muslims among Australian secondary students, they also raise thematic questions, such as: Will any dialogue lead to a rapprochement between the Muslim and mainstream communities? What is Christian-Muslim diversity? Why does it matter? Can we really learn how to manage diversity in the workplace? Can the Shari'a law coexist with the Australian legal system on issues including polygamy, marital status and dress?Availability: Items available for loan: Brotherhood of St Laurence (1).
