Identity, Education and Belonging: Arab and Muslim youth in contemporary Australia 
Mansouri,F., and Percival Wood, S.,(2008), Identity, Education and Belonging: Arab and Muslim youth in contemporary Australia, Melbourne University Press.

Book coverIdentity, Education and Belonging: Arab and Muslim Youth in Contemporary Australia came about as a result of the Diversity­An Educational Advantage project, an active research collaboration between Deakin University and Victorian Arabic Social Services. Post September 11 2001 it was recognised that, as the size of Arab and Muslim communities in Australia grows, and as international conflicts involving these groups intensify, Arab and Muslim youth experience increased pressure in secular Australian society. Historically, Arab and Muslim Australians have faced considerable social obstacles in their journey towards full integration. These have become all the more challenging when international events such as September 11, the conflict in Iraq, Australia’s presence in Afghanistan, and perceptions of Iran as a nuclear threat, situate Arabs and Muslims at the centre of global instability. Together with domestic events such as the arrival of (largely Muslim) asylum seekers and the Cronulla riots, these anxieties are exacerbated and Arab and Muslim youth, in particular, find themselves at the centre of a discourse of insecurity. Against this wider political context, the book examines the social and educational experiences of Arab and Muslim Australian youth, their cultural attitudes, sense of social belonging and subjective perceptions of their own fluid identity. The book argues that at a time when Arab and Muslim communities in Australia are connected to a language of risk and insecurity, critical links may exist between these groups’ sensitivities towards belonging and identity on the one hand, and their engagement at school and other social institutions on the other.

Human Rights in Asia: A Reassessment of the Asian Values Debate
Kingsbury., D and Avonius., L (2008) HUMAN RIGHTS IN ASIA :A Reassessment of the Asian Values Debate, Abingdon;New York,Routledge.

Human Rights coverThis book offers a critical reassessment of the “Asian values” debate, which dominated the human rights discourse in the late 1990s, and a reappraisal of the human rights situation in Asia since then. In this book Asian and non-Asian scholars contextualize the “Asian values” debate and examine in what ways the issues raised then continue to trouble Asian societies. Human rights are seen both in the context of political developments in individual Asian countries as well as in relation to global issues such as the Global War on Terror. The book challenges the reader to critically examine human rights rhetoric and practice both in Asia and globally.

Political Islam and Human Security
Mansouri, F. and Akbarzade, S. (eds.) (2008) Cambridge Scholars Publishing, London, pp.312.

Book cover - International Development: Issues and Challenges, Palgrave MacMillan, NYIn the wake of the September 11 and subsequent terrorist attacks, the academic and media commentaries on Islam the religion and Islam the basis for political ideology has received an unprecedented high level of exposure and attention. The acts of political violence by extremist groups and the omnipresent war on terror have added fresh uncertainties to an already complex global order. Just as terrorism and counter-terrorism are locked in a mutually re-enforcing symbiosis, the sense of insecurity felt by Muslims and non-Muslims alike is mutually dependent and has the potential to escalate. This general assessment holds true for Muslims living in the Muslim world and beyond. The pervasive sense of being under attack physically and culturally by the United States and its allies has contributed to a growing unease among Muslims and re-enforced deep-seated mistrust of the ‘West’. Public articulation of such misgivings has in turn, lent credence to Western observers who posit an inherent antipathy between the West and the Muslim world. The subsequent policies that have emerged in this context of fear and mutual distrust have contributed to the vicious cycle of insecurity. The present volume is anchored in the current debates on the uneasy and potentially mutually destructive relationship between the Muslim world and certain West countries. It brings together leading international scholars in this interdisciplinary field to deal with such inter-related questions as the nature of Islamism, the impact of the ‘war on terror’ on the spread of militancy, the growing sense of being under siege by Muslim Diasporas and the many unintended ramifications of a security-minded world order. This second volume deliberately focuses on these issues both at a broad theoretical level but more importantly in the form of a number of prominent case studies including Indonesia, Algeria and Turkey.


International Development: Issues and Challenges, Palgrave MacMillan, NY
Kingsbury D, McKay J, Hunt J, McGillivray M, Clarke M (2008)

Book cover - International Development: Issues and Challenges, Palgrave MacMillan, NY Institute members in association with their national and international colleagues have
recently produced International Development: Issues and Challenges. This publication
essentially updates the 2004 publication Key Issues in Development to which most
members of the author team contributed. The current publication canvasses the various
aspects of development and while retaining the traditional notion that it means the material
advancement of people, it also embraces the notion of empowerment. i.e. ‘development’
incorporates processes by which people and states of the non-industrialised world attempt
to improve both their material and social conditions of life. In applying their knowledge
to this work, the authors have drawn upon their collective expertise gained in the field in
developing states, in the course of their research related activities. This work projects as a
good example of the indirect benefit that arises from research pursued by members of the
Institute.


Global Citizens: Australian Activists for Change
Stokes, G., Pitty, R. and Smith, G (ed.) 2008 Cambridge University Press, Melbourne

book cover Rev. Tim Costello, CEO, World Vision Australia, launched ‘Global Citizens: Australian Activists for Change’ at the Second Biennial Conference of the International Global Ethics Association hosted by the ICG in Melbourne in June 2008. This timely book examines the political ideas and activism of nine Australian public intellectuals and activists who are global citizens. These Australians are politically engaged intellectuals who interpret, adapt and promote political ideas, emphasising the global community to which Australians belong. The book shows how these global citizens have helped to shape the nature of political discourse over the past 50 years by broadening the language of political accountability to include human rights and ecological sustainability, as well as keeping alive the values of peace and non-violence. In an age of globalisation where neoliberal ideas compete with exclusive forms of nationalism, this book reminds us that there are important universalist and cosmopolitan traditions of politics in
Australian public life. It argues that cosmopolitanism and the practices of global citizenship emanating from it offer the basis for a new transformative politics. This book provides a valuable resource on global citizenship.

Dr Linda Young undertook a consultancy for a consortium of Victorian state agencies dedicated to spreading high practice standards in heritage collections among community museums. It required several pleasant days of visiting local historical society museums in the Central Goldfi elds, reviewing collections, volunteer staff capacity and tools such as Heritage Victoria’s forthcoming Framework of Historic Themes. The conclusions were not as promising as had been expected, and the remainder of the project is being re-shaped in what is to be hoped will be a more useful direction. Linda wrote a carefully worded lamentation on the wider context of the project for the professional magazine, Museums Australia Journal, published in February: ‘Professional standards need professional resources’, MAM 16/3, Feb 2008, p.20. It has drawn many email responses of support.

Dr Linda Young assisted by Project Officer Mary Reid, organised and ran the 6th summer school at Deakin, ‘Introduction to Museum Practice’ for the Army Museums Network, an element of the Army History Unit, Dept of Defence, in January. Deakin’s School of History, Heritage & Society includes a surprising range of expertise in military and memorial history, providing a number of somewhat provocative talks to the 20 military blokes who participated. Many have never studied at university (though the military are so conditioned by frequent specialised training that they are excellent students), and the campus experience (including a dedicated red wine drinkers table at Einstein’s) was an additional bonus. Plus, of course, site visits to Melbourne institutions such as the MCC Museum (including a tour of the MCG, where many phone-photos were beamed back to offi ces), the Fire Brigade Museum and the new Vic Police Museum.
