`Wake up Australia' : the new world order : the human dimension / The Honourable Justice Marcus R. Einfeld

by Einfeld, Marcus R | Brotherhood of St Laurence.

Publisher: Fitzroy, Vic. Brotherhood of St Laurence 2001Description: 23 p. PDF.Online Access: DOWNLOAD PDF Notes: The 20th annual Sambell Oration, Wednesday 17 October 2001 at the Shell Conference Centre, Melbourne Summary: 53 years ago this December, a war-ravaged and war-weary world ushered in a new international order with what was called the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. It was a bold and brilliant document full of words, phrases and concepts that everyone wanted to hear. It spoke of recognising the inherent dignity and the equal and inalienable rights of all members of the human family as the foundation of freedom, justice and peace in the world. It observed that disregard and contempt for human rights had resulted in barbarous acts which have outraged the conscience of mankind. It called for the advent of a world in which human beings shall enjoy freedom of speech and belief, and freedom from fear and want, as the highest aspiration of the common people. It declared as essential that human rights should be protected by the rule of law.Availability: Items available for loan: Brotherhood of St Laurence (1).

‘Now I’m just like anyone else in the community’ : work, welfare, and community expectations of refugees in Australia [Journal article] / Martina Boese ; John Van Kooy ; Dina Bowman

by Boese, Martina | van Kooy, John | Bowman, Dina.

Publisher: Oxford, UK : Oxford University Press, 2020Description: 20 p. PDF.Summary: This article analyses policy documents and data from interviews with employment and settlement service providers, employers, and government officials to explore the increasing shift of Australian refugee settlement policies towards neoliberal imperatives of productivity and self-sufficiency. The responses of service providers shed light on prevalent constructions of refugee subjecthood and related expectations of humanitarian entrants as potential labour market participants. Our analysis highlights the policy rationales that underpin the contemporary design and delivery of refugee settlement support, and draws attention to variations in service providers’ adoption of these rationales. We argue that, while the realignment of refugee settlement support in Australia towards ‘workfare’ is consistent with emergent global narratives of ‘enhancing refugee self-reliance’, the significance of this shift lies in the ideologically driven erosion of the primary protective purpose of Australia’s long-standing humanitarian migration programme.

‘Surrounded with so much uncertainty’ : asylum seekers and manufactured precarity in Australia

by van Kooy, John | Bowman, Dina.

Description: PDF.Notes: Journal of Ethnic and Migration Studies,2018; John van Kooy: School of Social Sciences, Monash University ; Research and Policy Centre, Brotherhood of St Laurence Dina Bowman: Research and Policy Centre, Brotherhood of St Laurence ; School of Social and Political Sciences, University of MelbourneSummary: In Australia, nearly 30,000 asylum seekers have the legal right to work, but their temporary and conditional migration status exposes them to work-related precarity. This article draws on a small qualitative study that examined asylum seekers’ experiences of seeking work and achieving economic security. Over an 18-month period, 29 semi-structured interviews with asylum seekers who had work rights in Australia were conducted. It provides insights into how restrictive immigration policies manufacture precarity through short-term, conditional visas, resulting in employer risk aversion, segmentation into insecure work, and in-work instability and mistreatment. Asylum seekers manage their experiences and feelings of pervasive insecurity through individual coping and survival strategies.Availability: Items available for loan: Brotherhood of St Laurence (1).
"...and where are we now? : thoughts on the 2004 election." 2004 Sambell Oration / by Robert Manne

by Manne, Robert | Brotherhood of St Laurence.

Publisher: Fitzroy, Vic. Brotherhood of St Laurence 2004Description: 15 p. PDF.Online Access: DOWNLOAD PDF Notes: The 22nd annual Sambell Oration, Wednesday 20 October 2004 at Central Hall, Australian Catholic University, 20 Brunswick Street Fitzroy. 2 copiesSummary: Shortly after the November 2001 election I gave a talk which I called: “Where are we now?” The “we” here was deliberately ambiguous, referring both to Australia and to the kind of audience I knew would attend on that night—the left-liberal intelligentsia. When I was asked to provide a topic for tonight’s lecture, which I knew would occur shortly after the 2004 election, somewhat mischievously I suggested the title: “…And where are we now?” The “we” here has an identical ambiguity. Of course the title chosen allowed me to speak about a Labor victory if that were to occur. However as I believed it was almost certain that Labor would be defeated, I imagined that I would be speaking about the meaning of the defeat, as unhappily from my point of view I now am. For those who are enthusiastic about the victory of the Howard government I can only offer my apologies in advance. At least what follows will allow them to think about the interpretation of someone who regards the trajectory of Australia since 1996 with undisguised alarm Availability: Items available for loan: Brotherhood of St Laurence (1).

Afghan women : a preliminary snapshot of a complex community

by Routley, Vivien | Brotherhood of St. Laurence. Ecumenical Migration Centre | Hannan, Ainslie | White, Paul | Brotherhood of St Laurence.

Publisher: unpub. (Brotherhood of St Laurence. Ecumenical Migration Centre) 2001Description: 33 p. PDF.Online Access: DOWNLOAD PDF Notes: [Prepared by Vivien Routley, Ainslie Hannan, Dr. paul White with women of the Afgan community]Summary: This publication aspires to be part of a dialogue which will assist an understanding of the experiences, skills, needs and expectations of Afghan women. It is a contribution of EMC's 'Women and Their Families Program' which gives focused attention to women and their families from newly emerging communities, mainly refugee/humanitarian entrants. EMC trusts that community services planning and delivery can be enhanced and hopes that interest in the Afghan community will lead to further enquiry and outreach. A paper of this length cannot contain all relevant information about this very complex community. It is EMC's hope however, that it will provide a basis for the building of relationships of trust and further understanding. Such relationship building efforts by service providers are crucial for this community whose pre- arrival experience has been of conflict, abuse and corruption.

BSL submission to the Expert Panel on Asylum Seekers /

by Houston, Angus | Brotherhood of St Laurence | Aristotle, Paris | L'Estrange, Michael.

Publisher: Fitzroy, Vic. Brotherhood of St Laurence 2012Description: PDF.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: July 2012Summary: The Brotherhood of St Laurence recommends the following essentials to a solution: a) Accessible and timely processing of asylum claims through a strong and coordinated regional framework , in accordance with the Refugees Convention and Protocol ; whether in Australia or in transit countries in the region. Guaranteed resettlement to a refugee receiving country that is time-bound, requiring a significant increase in refugee settlement places in Australia and elsewhere to avoid refugees left languishing for years in the region. Ability to live/ earn/ not be detained during processing ; whether in Australia or in transit countries in the region; in line with UNHCR Guidelines. Strong enough functioning of the above three points so it is not a 'pull' to get on a boat as the only solution (this is compared with deterrence solutions that punish refugees). Multi-dimensional solutions that that go beyond essential border management l or countersmuggling and represent a genuine regional cooperation and re-settlement framework.Availability: (1)
