Australia Multiculturalism

...inform official documents. According to this view, Australia is now made up of people of diverse cultures that should be given equal status with the Australian mainstream. Australian citizenship is then invoked as the glue that binds these different groups into a national unity. The multicultural account of Australia as a nation of diverse cultural groups has been taken over by the Australian Citizenship Council in its prescriptions for Australian Citizenship for a New Century.2 The Citizenship Council eschews any notion of common national identity or shared culture in favour of 'public acceptance of diversity' and abstract civic values. Such values underpin citizenship, according to the Citizenship Council, and these together define and unite Australians. In the following paper we give a critical account of the evolution of multicultural policy and the conceptual muddle involved in extending it to national identity and citizenship. Multiculturalism merits praise as a humane policy for accommodating migrants from nonEnglish speaking backgrounds, and also as a cultural policy for enhancing the richness and variety of Australian life. It is a poor description of what we have in Australia, however, because migrants are for the most part geographically dispersed; they educate their children in English along with other Australian school children; and those children have a high propensity to marry out of their parents’ ethnic group. Australia does not have distinct cultural groups......

Churchill - 1945

...The wind of change blew strongly over the British Isles in 1945. The great wartime hero, Winston Churchill is no longer the country’s leader, in spite of his great effort and success overseas during the war. The right-wing Conservative leader thought to remain prime mister, expecting public gratitude. However, the English vote for parties, not people. There was a demographic impact within Britain that led to the swing of leadership from a more capitalist based party to a more socialist based party. The people of Britain were haunted by the 1930s, a world in which “seldom the all-importance of food is recognized. You see statues everywhere to politicians, poets, bishops, but none to cooks or bacon-curers or market gardeners”, as described by Orwell. A time in which the poor were overlooked and undermined, a land in which the people “bred in the slums can imagine nothing but the slums.” Why was Churchill, being the national hero that he was, rejected by the Britons? Was it the failure of the Conservatives, which gave rise to Labour; or was it the rise of Labour which led to the failure of the Conservatives? These are some key aspects that this essay will attempt to consider. This paper will focus on how the rise of Labour, through their efforts locally, won over the population in order achieve a significant victory. Conducive to that change in leadership was the lack of Tory focus on social-policy and attention towards the working-class, which emanated from the lack of......

Post 1945

...Post-1945 Multiple Choice and Short Answer 1: Dreaming - refers to all that is known and understood by Aboriginal people. It is the central spiritual concept because it determines not only beliefs and values but also relationships with other people and the overall environment. Aborigines are able to understand creation in a continuing and living sense by virtue of the Dreaming. It explains how the world was created by their ancestors and is passed on orally. E.g. dreaming stories such as the rainbow serpent. Dreaming links Aboriginals to the land, they are interdependent: “Aboriginals live their lives being at one with the land, and without land their Dreaming, tradition and culture are sure to die” (Anne Gray). Kinship – refers to the network of relationships that hold a clan together central to Aboriginal communities. Through kinship, they are instructed about particular obligations, rights and appropriate forms of behavior. It defines where a person fits into the community. Land is important to kinship and is often referred to as “my mother” so it is shared by many people. Disopession- Dispossession resulted in Aboriginals being separated from their physical land, kinship groups and the removal of their children from their families through the “Stolen Generation”. Dispossession first occurred in 1778 when the First Fleet recognised Australia as “terra nullius”. They implemented policies of protectionism where Aboriginals were removed from their rightful land......

Criticall Discuss the Beveridge Report in Shaping the Post 1945 Welfare State

...Critically discuss the Beveridge Report in shaping the Immediate Post 1945 Welfare State. In 1834 the Poor Law Amendment Act was introduced. The Amendment Act was aimed at ensuring the poor and needy had homes, food and clothing. Homes, food and clothing where provided in return for labour in the work houses, adults and children worked for several hours in the day. The children did receive education in the work houses, in return for their labour. The aim was that the outcome of being unable to support yourself or family was so harsh and severe, that it would stop anyone from wishing to enter (The National Archives, 2014: 1). The Second World War saw a shift from the Poor Law to the Welfare State through the Beveridge Report. “No one, not even Beveridge himself, ever planned the Welfare State, nor has it been a direct outcome of any political or social philosophy”, (Bruce, 1961: 13). “It has been in fact no more than the accumulation over many years of remedies to specific problems which in the end have reached such proportions as to create a new conception of governmental responsibility”, (Bruce, 1961: 13).” The Beveridge Report of 1942 was the culmination of a review of the whole of social security provision in Britain commissioned by the Wartime National Government”, (Alcock, 1987: 51). The Wartime National Government only set out to tidy Britain up, not to make the huge changes Beveridge reported were required. Beveridge found that Britain had five giant evils to......

...Land and Climate Area (sq. mi.): 2,988,902 Area (sq. km.): 7,741,220 Australia is the sixth largest country in the world. It is just smaller than Brazil and about four-and-a-half times the size of the U.S. state of Alaska. Australia is the only country that occupies a complete continent. It is also the driest inhabited continent in the world. About one-third of its land is desert and another third is composed of poor-quality land. A long chain of mountains, the Great Dividing Range, runs along the Pacific coast. Fertile farmland lies east of the Great Dividing Range, in the southwestern corner of Western Australia, and in the island state of Tasmania. Cattle stations (ranches) reach the edge of the barren interior desert. The famed Australian Outback is an undefined region that encompasses all remote, undeveloped areas. The Outback is seen as a mystical heartland or frontier—a symbol of Australia's strength and independence—where the climate is hot, life is hard, and people are tough, independent, and few.

...Australia- by A.D Hope (Alec Derwent Hope) A.D. Hope was born in 1907, cooma, New South Wales, Australia was an Australian poet and essayist known for his satirical slant. He was also a critic, teacher and academic. Hope began publishing poems when he was 14 years old and also was educated in Australia and at the University of Oxford. His first book of poem “the wandering Islands” appeared in 1955 and followed by several volumes of new poems and collected poems. He was appointed an officer of the order of the British Empire in 1972 and a companion of the order f Australia in 1981 and awarded many other honors. A.D. hope is an Australian poet. Australian poets write about aborigines (native Australians) and about their identity in their poems. The poem Australia talks about the present condition of Australia. The poem is written in an ABBA rhyme scheme, which adds a gentle, easy-going flow to the poem. According to the poet Australia was once a land of tress, but today it is full of war and soldiers. The hills of Australia are now dark and broken like lion statue of Egypt. And the poet mention that other people call Australia as a young country in the second stanza. But the poet does not agree with them because for him Australia is the “last of lands”. Poet refers “her” to Australia. Australia has a long history. Then the poet compares between Australia and a women. He talks about the changes of a women throughout life and compares it with Australia. So as a whole he is......

Australia

...One place I have always dreamed of visiting and living is Australia. Whenever I see Australia on TV everything looks beautiful. The people seem very friendly and warm. Culturally it seems like a good fit for me because the people are pretty easy going and so am I. The country is made up very similar to us in its people according to http://www.indexmundi.com/ a few positives for me is that the infant mortality rate is lower and the life expectancy is a little higher in Australia. One big note is the obesity rate is 26% amongst adults versus 33% in the US. 0 Financially the country is very stable. Their GDP is 999 billion and their 5 year growth rate is 2.5. The unemployment rate is 5.6% which is not too different then the US. The countries prominent religion is Protestant at 28% followed by Catholic at 25% in the U.S it is protestant at 58% and Catholic at 23%. So it seems more people in Australia have a defined religion than in the U.S. Liberal Party leader Tony Abbott was elected prime minister following his coalition’s victory in national election in 2013. Like Australia, the United States has a system of government that enshrines the idea of indirect democracy. Like Australia, the American system is based on principles of political equality, majority rule and the preservation of minority rights. The United States is the oldest continuing democracy in the world today and one of the first to embrace the idea of popular sovereignty. However, it is relatively unique......

It is one of the world’s most urbanised countries, with about 70 per cent of the population living in the 10 largest cities. Most of the population is concentrated along the eastern seaboard and the south-eastern corner of the continent. Australia’s lifestyle reflects its mainly Western origins, but Australia is also a multicultural society which has been enriched by nearly five million settlers from almost 200 nations. Four out of 10 Australians are migrants or the first-generation children of migrants, half of them from non-English speaking backgrounds. In 1991-92, East Asia contributed 41 per cent of settler arrivals. Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people totalled 265 378 at the last census, nearly 1.5 per cent of the population. Two thirds of the indigenous people live in towns and cities. Many others live in rural and remote areas, and some still have a......

Churchill 1945

...in the House of Commons. The notion that the Conservatives were defeated by 'the forces vote' is mistaken - as the opinion polls showed, the civilian vote was strongly pro-Labour - but war weariness was probably a factor against Churchill among civilians and servicemen alike. The result plunged him into depression and his party into shock, but it was not quite as bad as it seemed. The first-past-the-post system gave an exaggerated picture of Labour's triumph, disguising the fact that just over half the electorate had voted against them. Churchill soon recovered his spirits. He reinvented himself as a global statesman, doggedly retained the leadership of the Conservative Party, and confidently awaited what he saw as the inevitable reaction against Socialism. He had, in fact, performed one great service for Conservatism. After the failure of appeasement and the disrepute into which the pre-war leaders of the Conservative party had fallen, he had restored the party's patriotic credentials and saved it from the possibility of a defeat far worse than it in fact suffered in 1945....

Australia

...A) The per capita GDP of Australia is $40,000. In comparison to other countries, Australia ranks nineteenth. The unemployment rate is currently at 5.6% which is ranked fiftieth in the world, when compared to other countries. Finally, the inflation rate is at 1.8%, which is down for the 4.4% it was in 2008. Australia’s inflation rate is ranked at sixty-fourth in the world. B) The top exports of Australia are coal, iron ore, and sheep. In 2009, Australia exported $245.9 billion worth of exports and it is predicted that in 2010-2011 Australia will export about $169.8 billion worth of goods in the energy category alone. It is the world’s largest exporter of coal. C) Similar to the United States, the currency of Australia is in dollars, but these dollars are different from U.S. currency dollars. On September 1, 1003, the exchange rate of Australian dollars to U.S. dollars is .65. This means that the equivalent of one Australian dollar is equal to .65 U.S. dollars or sixty-five cents. Just a few short years later on September 1, 2005 the exchange rate from Australian dollars to U.S. dollars was at .75. The Australian dollar slightly increased in value since 2003. After another couple years, on September 1, 1007 the exchange rate of Australian dollars to U.S. dollars was up to .82. Finally on September 1, 2009 the exchange rate was at .84. Given these number, it shows that in comparison to U.S. dollars the Australian dollar has increased in value in every year since...

Australia History

...AIA103 Australia New World Nation 3. Since the late 1940s, Australia has been transformed from a monocultural ‘British’ society to become one of the most racially and culturally diverse nations in the world. How would you explain this? Today, Australia is considered as one of the most successful nations in building a tolerant, inclusive, and culturally diverse society. Many people are willing to live in this land. However, the pace to this successful society is very tough. For the first 50 years of federation Australia, this country was a monocultural ‘British’ society. Most migrants came from Britain. Since the late 1940s, more people from different countries immigrate to Australia. Most of them are European migrants after World War II. This phenomenon triggered defensive reactions by the previous dominant of Anglo-Australians (Nichols, 2011). The dominant wanted to assimilate the immigrants at the first stage, but some conflicts occurred during this process. Then, the immigration policy has been changed from assimilationsm to multiculturalism. After the start of federation of Australia in 1901, the government utilized White Australia Policy to all Australians, preventing anyone to enter Australia unless they were from Britain and trying to make this country into an English-speaking, Anglo-Australian cultural one. At that time, English is the first language being spoken by above 95 per cent people in Australia (Australian Bureau of Statistics 2002).......
