Transforming a 'White Australia' : issues of racism and immigration by Laksiri Jayasuriya( Book )

1 edition published in 2012 in English and held by 27 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Mass immigration post World War II has transformed Australian society and politics. This is indeed a far cry from the vision of the architects of the 'White Australia' policy over a hundred years ago. This volume explores this dramatic change by examining the politics of the peopling of Australia dating from the Immigration Restriction Act 1901, the so-called 'White Australia' policy which sought to forge the Australian nation as a 'citadel of the British speaking race' (Prime Minister Curtin). The book examines how critical issues of race and immigration still haunt the political landscape even as we find an increasingly cosmopolitan Australia becoming more Asian oriented. As a study of this unique and successful experiment in creating a diverse and multicultural society, this book will be useful to anyone interested in what drives and sustains a diverse and pluralistic society

Language and culture in Australian public policy : some critical reflections by Laksiri Jayasuriya( Book )

3 editions published in 1988 in English and held by 22 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The social, political, and ideological underpinnings of recent policy initiatives relating to language and culture in Australian society, in particular, those of concern to ethnic minority groups, are examined in this paper. The development of a policy for immigrant ethnic minorities has always been quite distinct in comparison with the indigenous minority, the Aboriginal groups, who by virtue of their historical and political status in society made different claims and demands on the state regarding matters such as cultural maintenance and language policy. This paper seeks to accomplish three main objectives. The first is to develop an understanding of how language has become manifest as an issue of public policy through an historical overview of the development of social policy in relation to migrants and ethnic groups during the last four decades. The second objective is to expose to critical scrutiny the rationale and some of the hidden and often unstated assumptions that lay behind these policies. Thirdly, given the continuing dominance of language and culture in policy development, the paper attempts to present the case for a paradigm shift away from a preoccupation with culture towards one more attuned to the current social reality and emerging needs of Australian society.
