Refugees and regional settlement : balancing priorities : summary /

by Taylor, Janet | Brotherhood of St Laurence.

Publisher: Fitzroy, Vic. Brotherhood of St Laurence 2007Description: 5 p.Other title: Cultural Diversity and Social Harmony Conference : The.Online Access: DOWNLOAD PDF Notes: September 2007 Includes bibliographical references "Cultural Diversity and Social Harmony Conference : The Goulburn Valley Experience, 26th & 27th September 2007, Eastbank Centre, Shepparton, Victoria." "Full report Refugees and regional settlement : balancing priorities (Taylor & Stanovic 2005) available at the Brotherhood library."Summary: "Refugees have become one distinctive face of social exclusion at the beginning of the 21st century. Australia's response to people seeking refuge is an indicator of progress made towards the inclusive and compassionate society which is the vision of the Brotherhood of St Laurence. Part of the Brotherhood's research has been to explore different ways of thinking about the definitions and measurement of disadvantage and to draw attention to the experience of groups who are unable to participate fully in Australian society. The research informing this report develops our work in applying a social exclusion framework (examining resources, relationships and rights)in this instance to an analysis of the settlement experience of refugees in regional Victoria. Promoting refugees' inclusion by linking them to the workforce and development needs of various regions in Victoria is a policy solution with considerable appeal to governments. But will the refugees find work and be made welcome in Victoria's country towns? This report examines the refugee settlement experience in Shepparton, Colac and Warrnambool. Taylor and Stanovic's richly layered account shows that policy planners contemplating future settlements need to think not only about the usual range of issues that migrants encounter regarding employment, housing, income and language, but also about concerns specific to refugees. ; The report also highlights two other aspects of the Brotherhood's vision of an inclusive society. First, it shows the need for careful planning of joined-up services, with the participation of refugee communities. Governments must act to ensure that the necessary community capacity is in place. Second, it demonstrates the need to invest in social programs in tandem with planning economic development, to ensure the employment and learning opportunities which are ultimately vital to social inclusion." -- Forward by Paul SmythAvailability: Items available for loan: BSL Archives (1).

The boy who wouldn't die /

by Vincent, David Nyuol | Nader, Carol.

Publisher: Fairfax Books 2012Description: 232 p., [12] p. of plates : col. ill., col. ports. ; 24 cm.Summary: David Nyuol Vincent was a little boy when he fled southern Sudan with his father, as war raged in their country. He left behind his distraught mother and sisters, his village and his childhood. He would never return. For months David and his father walked across southern Sudan, barefoot, desperately searching for safety, food and water. They survived the perilous Sahara Desert crossing into Ethiopia only to be separated. David was taken in and trained as a child soldier, surviving the next 17 years of his life alone in refugee camps. Life was a relentless struggle against starvation, air bombings and people determined to kill him and his people. In 2004 David was offered a humanitarian visa as one of the Lost Boys of Sudan and was resettled to Australia. Traumatised by what he had seen and endured, he went about the slow and painful process of making a new life for himself-a life away from hunger, away from guns, away from death. A life where David is determined to improve the plight of his people both here in Australia and back in South Sudan. Told with frankness and humour, this is the powerful account of a young man's resilience. The story of a boy who refused to dieAvailability: Items available for loan: Brotherhood of St Laurence (2).
