  • Volume 5 Issue 1 - Peripheral Re/visions
    • Abstract: Robertson, Susan
      Discusses the geopolitics of place, nation and dis/location. Knowledges produced in the metropoles and exported to the periphery, including those produced by the diasporic elites have been found to be economically useful, socially uplifting and politically benign.

  • Volume 5 Issue 1 - Neither Here nor There
    • Abstract: Wark, McKenzie
      Discusses the advantages of a 'provincial education' in Australia compared with humanities training in higher education in the United States. The author discusses his experiences of emigrating to the United States eight years ago when offered a visiting professorship. The dominant policy in Australian higher education regarding expatriates is mentioned. There are numerous schemes that seem designed to get people to come back permanently - or at least semi-permanently. The author suggest that the most valuable thing might be an ongoing network that can sponsor both people and ideas as they move in both directions.

  • Volume 5 Issue 1 - Developing Better Research Collaborations

  • Volume 5 Issue 1 - Mobilising Hybridity
    • Abstract: Ang, Ien
      Migrant scholars can bring a unique perspective to their research. In reflecting on his own biography, the author notes how the mixed blessings of hybridity have always informed the trajectories of his thinking and research. His development as a scholar has been shaped by mobilising hybridity as an analytical lens, a methodological tool and, most importantly, an effective resource. In this sense, his identity and practice as a scholar cannot be dissociated from his personal history of migration.

  • Volume 5 Issue 1 - Rethinking Old Notions of Brain Drain/Gain
    • Abstract: Fahey, Johannah; Kenway, Jane
      Many of Australia's most inventive researchers are on the move around the globe, and in the future their numbers will grow. Is it in our national interest to try to attract them home' Or should we think more creatively and generously about this issue' Notions of brain drain and brain mobility and global citizenship are discussed.

  • Volume 5 Issue 1 - Moving Ideas
    • Abstract:
      How might we think about the movement of humanities and social science researchers without resorting to the usual, less generous notions such as 'brain drain', brain mobility and diaspora' That was one of the questions that prompted a recent invitational conference called Moving Ideas and Research Policies: Australian Intellectuals in the Global Context. Organised by Johannah Fahey and Jane Kenway on behalf of the Monash Institute for the Study of Global Movements, the conference addressed researcher mobility as a policy issue with epistemological, ontological and ethical implications. Some of their papers are published in this issue of Around the Globe.

  • Volume 6 Issue 1 - Investing in Diverse Cities: The Policy of the City of
           the Hague
    • Abstract: Baldewsingh, Rabin
      European cities have taken different approaches to incorporating immigrants within their host society. Rabin Baldewsingh outlines the position taken in The Hague. After being elected as Deputy Mayor, he was offered the portfolio 'integration' and he found the term 'integration' very problematic, as over time it had gained an increasingly negative connotation. He introduced the term 'citizenship' and developed a 'citizenship policy'.

  • Volume 6 Issue 1 - Integration Political - the Ultimate Indicator'
    • Abstract: Aguilar, Alfonso
      The author argues that representation in political institutions the ultimate indicator of civic integration. An individual in a liberal democracy participates in two spheres - one cultural and the other political. The cultural, incorporating religion and ethnic traditions, is up to the individual. The government's main interest in the cultural sphere is to provide it space and ensure that individual rights, including freedom of religion and freedom of expression, are protected in the public arena. The electoral success of President Barack Obama, and that of many other candidates - black, Hispanic, Asian and otherwise - show that rejecting identity politics and espousing the vision that immigrants and minorities belong to the same larger community, based on common civic values, has greater appeal than candidates trying to advance the interests of one ethnic group or community.

  • Volume 6 Issue 1 - Immigration Works Where Immigrants Work
    • Abstract: Hansen, Randall
      The author argues that over the past decade, two trends in European migration and integration policy stand out: first, a liberalisation of migration policy for skilled workers, and second, a hardening of integration requirements for new immigrants and, in some cases, permanent residents. Migration policy works where migrants work. The author suggests that the greatest failure within all Western European immigration policies has been a failure to ensure that migrants acquire and retain work.

  • Volume 6 Issue 1 - Pasifika Migration - the New Zealand Story
    • Abstract: Bedford, Richard
      Recent confrontations in the New Zealand media stirred up a number of negative stereotypes about immigrants' place in society. Richard Bedford looks at New Zealand's Pasifika population and the integration of the second generation. Education and labour-market outcomes for island-born and New Zealand-born Pacific peoples are compared. Labour force participation as a measure of progress among New Zealand's Pacific population is discussed.

  • Volume 6 Issue 1 - The Risk of Diversity
    • Abstract: Jakubowicz, Andrew
      The meanings of integration in Australian political culture from 1900 to the present are discussed. The author argues that since 2008 'integration' has clearly returned as an ideology of immigrant settlement policy in Australia. Australia's integration future seems now to be firmly set on a course in which cultural recognition of difference is subordinated to priorities of social cohesion, as these are perceived by the current political and social elites.

  • Volume 6 Issue 1 - Highlights
    • Abstract: Golebiowska, Kate
      Some of the highlights of the 'Integration Futures' Conference held at the Monash University Prato Centre in Italy in October, 2008 are discussed. International scholars and other experts gathered at the conference to discuss the nature and consequences of the current immigrant integration policies in their countries (including various EU countries, Australia, New Zealand, Canada, USA, India and Japan.). This was the third in a series of conferences hosted at the centre by the Metropolis Project, the Monash Institute for the Study of Global Movements, and the Australian Multicultural Foundation. The discussion concentrated on the widespread shift away from providing settlement and employment support to newcomers to immigration policies now focusing on maintenance of social cohesion and national identities.

In particular, the success of associations with Monash South Africa, Monash Malaysia, the Monash Prato Centre and the Menzies Centre at King's College London are being continued and strengthened with fresh projects.

  • Volume 4 Issue 2 - The Influence of the Fourth Estate
    • Abstract: Jakubowicz, Andrew
      The role the media plays in Australia and other countries in creating social cohesion - and ethnic friction - is examined. The author argues that social cohesion can be a state of constant change, which remains open to new ideas and new solutions from all citizens: the media's role could be to help that happen. Unfortunately, too often its role is to block understanding and push people to the margins - where they opt out and disengage.

  • Volume 4 Issue 2 - The Healthcare Dilemma
    • Abstract: Abella, Manolo
      In 2003 the Commonwealth Secretariat developed a code of practice (since adopted by the Commonwealth Health Ministers) for the international recruitment of health workers, which aimed to discourage recruitment from developing countries that themselves were short of such workers. Instead of addressing the shortage through recruitment policies, it would make more sense for rich countries that gain substantially from migration to donate resources to expand and improve the training facilities for nursing and other health-related occupations. Admission programs for foreign health professionals may be designed explicitly with a view to strengthening training in origin countries through programmed rotation and teaching stints, so that those who have gained experience can share it with young students at home.

It will mean incorporating elements of the histories of different parts of Europe and of the Commonwealth.

The author argues it is becoming increasingly impossible to maintain social cohesion with civilised liberal and compassionate values when nations have replaced trading protectionism with identity protectionism.

The research was conducted in a Western Cape township near Athlone on the Cape Flats. It represents only a small snapshot of such activity, but it is clear that long-term investments in teacher training and further resourcing will be required before school literacy activities with computers can shift into a different paradigm - one where children use software to develop other semiotic powers in addition to those needed to 'cheat' the quiz. Such a paradigm would emphasise how computers can be used to mediate communication and would develop an expanded version of literacy.

The outsourcing of some basic services will stimulate immigration to a relatively small number of centres as regional migration systems intensify. Management will also entail greater control as governments seek to reduce, if not eliminate, irregular migration and particularly that which is the result of trafficking.

    • Abstract: Kennedy, Russell
      The appropriate, ethical and respectful use of Indigenous visual iconography is becoming an important issue around the world - especially when designers are required to visually represent national identity. Many countries now feel a need to acknowledge their whole history and not just their colonial history. This awkward cultural dynamic exists in many countries, including Australia. Combining the Indigenous and non-Indigenous requires a sensitive approach to unique sensibilities. MIX06 (Migrant Indigenous Exchange 2006), a cultural exchange project between visual communication students from Monash University and the University of Hartford in the USA, set out to deal with this difficult and culturally sensitive issue. The exchange took place between April and October 2006 and explored the relationship between Indigenous and non-Indigenous culture within the context of national identity.

However some do not stay on in China. Return to Canada is considered an option. Circular migration is determined by both the wider contexts of sending and receiving countries as well as the changing expectations of a migrant over his or her lifetime.

If a country imports more skilled workers than it exports, it enjoys a 'net brain gain' from the rest of the world.

The emigration of highly skilled workers has both costs and benefits for sending countries.The moral issues are also discussed.
