Opening address Ethnic communities Building Better australian cities and Towns,Opening Address - By Professor Rob Lynch, Dean of The Faculty of Business.
Opening address - Ethnic Communities Building Better Australian Cities and Towns Opening Address - By Professor Rob Lynch, Dean of The Faculty of Business The Faculty of Business is not just about providing educational resources to large corporate businesses. Our courses are designed to cater for the all sectors of the community, including the social economy. The social economy is vast; it includes all non-profits such as charities, community organisations and churches and also co-operatives, associations, mutuals, friendly societies and other member-based organisations. These organisations are important, in the way that they contribute to our rich and varied society, and in building social capital. They also make an important economic contribution. According to a recent ABS report, the social economy makes a larger contribution to the national economy than the mining or agricultural industries. The Faculty demonstrates its commitment to the social economy through its postgraduate courses in non-profit and community management, by sponsoring the Centre for Australian Community Organisation Management (CACOM) and through its financial support of ACCORD, the Australian Centre for Co-operative Research and Development. A collaborative venture between the business Faculty of UTS and Charles Sturt Universities, ACCORD is dedicated to research and development of co-operatives, mutuals, and the broader social economy. ACCORD receives financial support from both universities and the New South Wales Office of Fair Trading. It operates independently and undertakes a wide range of research and development projects in partnership with government, the private sector, and the community.

URBAN POLICY ISSUES IN THE ASIA-PACIFIC REGION: THE MELBOURNE WORKSHOP The workshop pursued three major objectives: (a) encourage urban policy research among a network of scholars in major cities of the Asia-Pacific Region; (b) promote dialogue and collaboration between local governments in each of the city-regions in the network and, where possible, help establish and/or strengthen centres of urban policy research in each of them; and (c) facilitate the exchange of information and other forms of collaboration among urban policy centres of the Asia-Pacific Region. The workshop focussed on the following topics: (a) spatial organization and regional governance; (b) environmental sustainability; (c) social sustainability; (d) migrant workers, civil society, and citizenship; (e) intercity networks; and (f) towards a common research agenda. A thematic paper by John Friedmann, "World City Futures: The Role of Urban and Regional Policies in the Asia-Pacific Region" was circulated to participants beforehand. It contained extensive discussions on some of the background to the workshop, its theoretical premises, and the workshop topics. (This paper is available as Occasional Paper 56, February 1997, from the Hong Kong Institute of Asia-Pacific Studies of the Chinese University of Hong Kong, Shatin, N.T. Hong Kong).

Camera Business Writer What does an Australian company that wants to make it big in America do? It moves to Boulder. International Strategies Holding Corp., which was founded Down Under but is now an American company, has established a Boulder presence in order to launch its city-centric Web portal site in the United States. The site is similar to other geographic portals and in that it provides information on where to live, shop and eat in various cities around the world. A portal is a World Wide Web site used as a jumping off point to go to other sites on the Web. City-centric or geographic sites offer dozens of cities to "visit," where Internet surfers can find links to local information. is attempting to distinguish itself from other city-centric portals by focusing on mid-sized cities such as Boulder and Broomfield rather than metropolises like Denver and Los Angeles. "We believe that most people work in the city but live in the outlying communities, and that's where their interests are," said Noel Miller, president and chief executive officer of International Strategies.

Australian Folk Songs
books records articles ... home A Familiar Air Peter Parkhill shares some insights about the place of music in a multicultural Australian context and about the recordings of performances and interviews which he donated to the National Library's Oral History Collection in 1986 This article first published in National Library of Australia News February 1995, used with kind permission of the author SALMAN RUSHDIE has called our time 'the century of the migrant'. He speaks of an era in which people whose forebears have lived in one place for centuries have been forced to move to industrial towns or cities; either in their own countries or to countries far away, simply to earn enough to live. And the views of millions of people as to which group of people or which community they belong, even who they are, are challenged daily. This question of identity has been a part of the migration experience for many Australians, and prior to the multicultural policies of the Whitlam government, Australian attitudes towards difference as a personal quality were negative in the extreme. For those who arrived here during the 'migration boom' following the Second World War, for example, assimilationist dogma insisted that immigrants to these shores should, and therefore could, abandon every part of their former lives and become 'complete Australians'. As the sociologist Jean Martin put it, quoting a not uncommon view of the time from the lips of an official: a speaker who declared . . . that immigrants 'should be discouraged from retaining their own language, their own customs and traditions, which they should have left behind when they came to Australia'.

Australian government dumps refugees in cities without money or basic services
By Mike Head 6 May 2000 Use this version to print The Howard government's vicious policy on refugees has become one of the most glaring expressions of its right-wing social policy. Just last month it forcibly deported, or in some cases imprisoned, nearly all the remaining Kosovo war refugees who came to Australia last year. Now, in his latest initiative, Immigration Minister Philip Ruddock has urged welfare charities and state governments not to offer food, clothing, housing or other essential assistance to any successful refugee applicants once they are finally released from the federal government's detention camps. Ruddock is implementing a new scheme that grants three-year temporary visas to refugees who entered the country illegally, even after they pass the stringent tests for asylum under the international Refugee Convention. The scheme blatantly flouts UN covenants, which stipulate that asylum-seekers who flee across national borders without official permission must be treated no worse than other refugees.
