Multiculturalism and Integration : A Harmonious Relationship by Michael Clyne( )

2 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 796 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Multiculturalism has been the official policy of all Australian governments (Commonwealth and State) since the 1970s. It has recently been criticised, both in Australia and elsewhere. Integration has been suggested as a better term and policy. Critics suggest it is a reversion to assimilation. However integration has not been rigorously defined and may simply be another form of multiculturalism, which the authors believe to have been vital in sustaining social harmony

Political theory and Australian multiculturalism( )

"This volume explores for the first time how the Australian experience both relates and contributes to political thought on multi-culturalism. Focusing on whether a multicultural regime undermines political integration, social solidarity, and national identity, the authors draw on the Australian case to critically examine the challenges, possibilities, and limits of multiculturalism as a governing idea in liberal democracies."--BOOK JACKET

Women in a restructuring Australia : work and welfare( Book )

1 edition published in 1995 in English and held by 188 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Restructuring in the global economy over the past two decades has brought major changes to Australia. This restructuring has had profound effects upon women's lives. More women are now in paid work, equal opportunity provisions have been established and the welfare system has undergone major changes. In Women in a Restructuring Australia, leading feminist scholars, including Lois Bryson, Bettina Cass, Rosemary du Plessis, Belinda Probert and Sheila Shaver, ask: Has restructuring improved the position of women? Has greater gender equality been achieved? What are the implications for both women's and men's citizenship? Women in a Restructuring Australia is the most up-to-date book covering women's social and economic position in paid employment and welfare. It is essential reading for students and scholars in Women's Studies, Sociology, Social Work, Economics and Politics

5 editions published between 1987 and 1999 in English and held by 95 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book contributes to an understanding and resolution of the major issues confronting Australian education by reviewing the research and scholarly work in education that has been conducted during the past 20 years. It presents a survey of the substantial volume of research into educational problems, practices and institutions which has been carried out in Australia since 1965. The decade from 1971 to 1981 especially, saw notable growth across Australia in both the volume and the quality of research, and scholarly writing into educational questions. The authors review the work carried out in Australia, identify its significance for policy and practice, and suggest areas where further work is urgently required. The chapters are grouped into three major areas: background perspectives, with chapters on the philosophy of education, the history of education, family environments and curricular research and development; policy and practice, with chapters on educational achievement, teaching and learning, teacher education and higher education; and special programs, with chapters on the education of girls, youth in transition, education for a multicultural society, Aboriginal education, and educational privilege and disadvantage
