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)

Transforming rural land use /

by Garnaut, Ross | Garnaut Climate Change Review.

Publisher: Canberra, A.C.T. Commonwealth of Australia 2011Description: PDF.Other title: Garnaut Climate Change Review update paper ; no. 4, 2011.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: Bibliography : p. 50-58Summary: Australia has always been a country of climate extremes. The health of Australian farming will continue to depend on effective management of weather and climate uncertainty. It is increasingly clear that the world is moving towards more rapid and severe climate change. The science is telling us that climate change will be associated with significant warming, which will change optimal planting and harvesting times and the crops, cultivars and animal types that do well in each region. It will reduce water run-off even if there is no general effect on rainfall, and so reduce water available from rivers and streams for irrigation. It is likely to increase the intensity of extreme events: heatwaves and associated bushfires; cyclones in tropical regions; episodes of exceptionally high rainfall; and drought. The impacts of accelerating climate change will intensify the climatic challenge to rural Australia. The scientific evidence is considered in Update Paper five (The science of climate change). Land use planning will need to identify the range of future climate change risks and to consider how best to take these into account. Increasingly, farmers will need to understand and actively manage these risks to ensure the success of their activities in a changing climate.Availability: (1)
