by Holt, Lillian.

Publisher: Fitzroy, Vic. G.T. Sambell Memorial Trust 1993Description: 9 p. PDF.Online Access: DOWNLOAD PDF Notes: "Occasional Paper - Companions of St Laurence - 1993" - Front cover Delivered on 10th August 1993 at the Auditorium, Clunies Ross House, Parkville Summary: My directive to speak on employment, unemployment and work from an Aboriginal perspective is somewhat daunting, in the sense that it is not a clear, clinical topic which you can deal with in isolation. Aboriginal issues; whether they be health, education or employment, are never clear cut, nor can they be dealt with in isolation. The historical legacies of the past determine the present, and we can no longer pretend that they, too, exist in isolation. The present status of Aboriginal people in whatever area is therefore about certain fundamental attitudes and actions in the arena of race relations for the past two hundred years. Those attitudes and actions are sometimes neither pretty nor palatable, and we need not dwell on them. However, neither should we deny them.

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).

Hunter (1999) demonstrates that Indigenous disadvantage is multidimensional and argues that Indigenous poverty is different to other forms of poverty in Australia in the incidence and depth of poverty experienced. Furthermore the multiple disadvantages that are experienced by many, if not most, Indigenous Australians indicates that Indigenous disadvantage can be understood as reflecting a multi-dimensional form of disadvantage that is complex and multi-generational and ; cannot be reduced into a simple static notion of Indigenous poverty. The concept of ?social exclusion? was developed to describe entrenched and complex behaviours and outcomes however, given the subject of this symposium, it is pertinent to ask what is social inclusion and how should and does it differ from social exclusion...IntroAvailability: (1)
