Key Factors Addressed
Representation Of Muslims: explores how the media represents Muslims and how muslims in particular are presented as products of their religion in ways that non-muslims generally are not.
Human And Civil Rights: issues of discrimination, vilification and targeting affect entire families and their social wellbeing and the respondents reported a wide range of discriminatory actions from a number of agencies.
Belonging And Values: most of the respondents reported positively about becoming part of Australian society but outlined ways in which agencies and governments could assist the process of integration.
Linkages In The Community: there is room to help young men getbto know how to integrate their own culture and background with Australian society, so connections between each other and between services can provide benefits in social integration.
Settlement Support: opportunities exist to offer better and more cohesive 'orientation' into Australian lifestyles, primarily around accessing essential health, employment, language and education services and having help to navigate the systems of Australian society.
