Their interest may be better served by resettlement elsewhere. The Australian government makes an annual contribution to the United Nation High Commission for Refugees (UNHCR) which is the main body associated with such resettlement. Australia, on many occasions has raised its concern regarding the increasing number of Syrian refugees. Not only the refugees should have all the basic needs fulfilled but the host country’s economy should not suffer either. With the global warming increasing at an alarming rate it is now time to think about the future of the climate refugees.
Alcohol will affect young adults a lot due to the increased risk of health problems traffic accidents. People at 18 years of age are not mature enough to start drinking. In summary, we should raise the drinking age to 21 in Australia. If we were to raise the legal drinking age, we would be able to reduce lots of problems that we concerned
Australia has had an almost 40% increase in illegal immigrants in 2013. The government has always had a relatively tough control over immigrants, but began to become more strict with the influx of immigrants that started to flow in. As well as, have started to crack down on illegal immigrants with in the country by making more laws and putting in more efforts to find and relinquish them from the country. Denmark has very strict policy to keep immigrants in check and limit the inflow of immigrants into the country. For one immigrants have to assimilate to the Danish culture.
An Australian Republic is about us — not the Queen, not Prince Charles or the world economy. We should do it now, without delay. As Nelson Mandela once said, “ For to be free is not merely to cast off one 's chains, but to live in a way that respects and enhances the freedom of others.” Until we break our last Constitutional links to the mother country, our nationhood is incomplete. Now after just over 115 years of Federation, Australia must finally join the world of nations as a full equal, unshackled to any other nation. POINT 1 COST: Many anti-republicans argue that the cost of changing to a republic is too high, as where
Recent studies found that the most effective way of reducing gun crime is to lower the amount of guns available in circulation. In the US specifically, studies show that the stricter gun laws are in a state, the lower the amount of deaths related to guns occur (Graham). While many believe that further restrictions on guns would not be feasible, both Australia and the United Kingdom managed to highly restrict or ban guns from their nations in order to reduce gun-related deaths and crime (Graham). Australia was able to rid the country of around 650,000 guns and their rate of robberies per 100,000 people sank from about 100 to 60 (cite later 1). This program of complete gun confiscation costed Australia $230 million.
Immigration has encountered through 3 major events: during the 19th century after the civil war and after the abolition of the quota system in 1965. Every year U.S.A receives approximately half a million immigrants. Yes, that is a lot but those aren’t normal immigrants immigrating these 500,000 are illegally immigrating into the US Why do we Immigrate? This is all related to migration being part of history that the need of humans to change place relays on the conditions they’ve live in to the opposite conditions they want to live. People usually believe that their home countries and not better then somewhere where things and essentials of living are provided all the time.
According to the Hong Kong Housing Authority, as at December 2016, there are around 148000 general applicants for Public Rental Housing and the average waiting time is 4.7 years. This shows that a large amount of people are suffering from the housing problem and the high land rent. According to Charles Chan, the managing director of Savills Valuation and Professional Services stated that using just a few percent of the country park land is enough for 10 years of housing supply. This shows that developing country parks can significantly increase the housing supply of Hong Kong in the long run, shortened the waiting time and can alleviate the housing problem in
A major change that has occurred in the Western family is an increased incidence in divorce. Whereas in the past, divorce was a relatively rare occurrence, in recent times it has become quite commonplace. This change is borne out clearly in census figures. For example thirty years ago in Australia, only one marriage in ten ended in divorce; nowadays the figure is more than one in three (Australian Bureau of Statistics, 1996: p.45). A consequence of this change has been a substantial increase in the number of single parent families and the attendant problems that this brings (Kilmartin, 1997).
According to the Australian Bureau of Statistics “almost a quarter of Australia’s population was born overseas and [almost half] of people have at least one overseas-born parent.” But, the 2011 national census indicated that “the United Kingdom is the leading country of birth for the overseas-born population” and according to the Huffington Post: “approximately 92 percent of Australia’s inhabitants are of white, European descent.” Of course this white settlement dating back to the late 1700’s has constructed the stereotypical Australian identity, usually thought of as the Anglo-Saxon Australia. The Australian Government Department of Social Services defines Australian multiculturalism as “the way Australians address the challenges and opportunities of cultural diversity. It is a term which recognises and celebrates this diversity.” But Australia does not follow this definition of multiculturalism. Instead of celebrating and accepting diversity, at best, it is only tolerated. An example of this is the White Australia Policy, a series of policies that prevented non-European people from entering Australia from as far back as 1901 with the introduction of the Immigration Restriction Act 1901.
At present these countries are home to nearly half of the world’s population. Among numerous consequences of large-scale immigration to Russia is the formation and increase in the numbers of ethnic communities that occupy “niches” in some branches of the economy where they enjoy solid positions in business. The main migrant flow to Russia is channeled from the CIS countries. From 1993 to 2009 Russia received 7.1million persons from these former USSR countries. For the most part (approximately 60%) the migrants were ethnic Russians.
