The Syrian community in Australia

This is an excellent response to the crisis, providing a home for thousands of people who have abandoned their homes due to persecution and war, and will add to the strength of our diverse, multicultural community, and economy. But it got me thinking – Syria is not one of the countries that springs to mind when you think of Australia’s immigration history. How many are here already and where do they live? The 2011 Census showed 8,713 people born in Syria living in Australia. This is quite a small community compared to some of the larger groups, for instance we have over 76,000 from neighbouring Lebanon and 33,000 from neighbouring Turkey. This number increased about 30% from 2006, when 6,956 were recorded. A larger number of people – just under 14,000 – indicated Syrian ancestry at the 2011 Census.

What we have here is someone coming into your home telling you they like your house better than theirs and they are going to live with you. You have to feed, cloth, care, and educate them while looking after their needs. Your children now have to share a room and you have to make the dollars stretch further to provide for them. They don’t have to work you are providing for them. A clear message from Australians was 'stop the boats', when we were being swamped by illegals coming to Australia.

RiskAdvisory – Risk Advisory collaborates with Aon on 2015 Terrorism & Political Violence Map

Launched today by Aon Risk Solutions, the global risk management business of Aon plc (NYSE: AON), in partnership with The Risk Advisory Group, the map provides insight for business aiming to reduce risk exposures. Nine developed economies (Australia, Belgium, Canada, Denmark, Estonia, France, Germany, Ireland and Norway) are all rated at increased risk. Many of these rises are largely due to increased terrorism threats, most of which stem from the rising influence of Islamic State (IS) as well as the ongoing threat from Al-Qaeda affiliates and supporters. The map shows a mixed picture, with a net reduction on country risk ratings worldwide, but with political violence and terrorism risks concentrating and intensifying around a smaller number of countries.

How can we implement Sustainable Development Goal 16 on institutions?

Ambitious and visionary, like all the SDGs, Goal 16 has the potential to either catalyze profound social transformation, or to remain merely empty rhetoric—illusory words on paper without substance or relevance to the lives we lead. Transformative or illusory? What can make the difference? Quick facts: What you need to know about the Syria crisis.

Quick facts: What you need to know about the Syria crisis

Families are struggling to survive inside Syria, or make a new home in neighboring countries. Others are risking their lives on the way to Europe, hoping to find acceptance and opportunity. But one fact is simple: millions of Syrians need our help. You can help. IDMC » Syria. PEACE AND JUSTICE IN THE MIDDLE EAST.: Deakin University Library Search.

Measuring SDG 16: What role for African regional frameworks? Recent discussions around the post-2015 development agenda have highlighted that many of the 169 targets require better clarification. In some cases, the connection between the targets and the goals need to be better articulated.

Key points: Act for Peace - What we do. Syria - Corruption and Government Transparency. The law provides criminal penalties for official corruption; however, the government did not implement the law effectively. There are no laws providing for public access to government information, and the government granted no access in practice. There were reports of government corruption during 2010, and the World Bank's Worldwide Governance Indicators reflected that corruption was a problem.

Notwithstanding the investigation and dismissal of scores of mid- and low-level officials for corruption during the second half of 2010, many other officials continued to engage in corrupt practices with impunity. Industry experts reported that 60 percent of all business transitions are conducted in cash and that nearly 80 percent of all Syrians did not use formal banking services. Syria is well known for its corrupt business environment, which denies the Syrian people economic prosperity and other freedoms. The corruption which starts at the top filters down through all levels of business.
