Executive Summary
The report looks at the refugees in Australia. The key issues that are being discussed is the access to home and shelter, along with work for the refugees and the access to education for their children as well. These are important issues because they look at the future of the country as well. Cu
ently the organization looks at the solution of appealing to the media and the government as well. These seem to be working for the organization. They also try to include cele
ities for the cause to appeal to the common people and thus influence the government as well.
Introduction
The report about the issues regarding the refugee crisis was commissioned by the Government of Australia. The report was prepared by a group of researchers at the Refugee Council of Australia. The intent of the report is to provide an understanding of the two issues that refugees are facing around the world.
Organizational background
The Refugee Council of Australia is a huge um
ella body. The organization is meant for refugees, those who are seeking asylum in Australia and those organization or people who have the aim to help the refugees. It is a non-profit organization that is devoid of the government and is not dependent on the government. The Refugee Council of Australia has 1000 individual and 200 organizational members. The aim of the organization is to improve the asylum and refugee policies of the country, at both a national and state level. They do this by looking and analysing the policies, identifying key issues and advocating change. The organization has published a lot of their policies online and advocated for change through constant communication with the media as well. The target audience are Australian citizens and refugees who are looking to make change in the legal system and laws in Australia.
Key Issues
Roof over the Head
There have laws that have been passed by the government of Australia that will force the desperate communities that are the asylum seekers and the refugees into destitution. They are not able to get proper sustenance, many times don’t know the language to get jobs or have no ability to work for their survival, except in basic, manual labour jobs (Guajardo, et al, 2016). They are thus, not able to work at all to make their basic ends meet. The government is further passing laws to make it harder for them to get jobs and housing. The government also has stopped providing them with housing. This is making it harder for the refugees and asylum seekers (Hartley and Pederson, 2015). This campaign is aimed at making the government change the laws so that they provide housing and basic training to the asylum seekers and refugees in order to give them a fighting chance at surviving in Australia.
Research
“Evaluating the Impact of Immigration Policies on Health Status Among Undocumented Immigrants: A Systematic Review” talks about how anti-immigration policies and health care services that are provided to immigrants, refugees and asylum seekers are intertwined with each other (Martinez, et al, 2015). “Vulnerability Report” by the Australian Red Cross looks at the asylum seekers, refugees and immigrants and looks at the conditions that they live in Australia. The report also has some suggestions to the government on what can be done better as well. It recommends that the government provide work rights to the people, as well as provide basic living allowance so that they can get back on their feet and work as hard as possible to survive in the country (Slewa-Younan, et al, 2014).
Discussion
The government takes in thousands of refugees every year. However, most of these refugees are without any resources needed to survive once they reach Australia. They don’t have the skills, knowledge of the language, or the mental strength to survive (Savic, et al, 2016). The government should be able to provide them with resources so that they may succeed. However, this would be a huge strain on the resources of the government. The government might not have the basic resources to let them survive on its own (Hancock, 2017). Thus, there should be a fine balance that should be achieved in providing resources and obtaining those resources as well.
Findings
The main aim of the research has been to provide credibility to the fact that most refugees who live in Australia have come with almost nothing. Many of them have no skills that are useful, are traumatized by what has happened in the country and by their travel as well (Bellamy, et al, 2015). Most of...
