The men sector related to increasing Australia’s population through migration. Although it wasn’t just for that, the increase in population was needed for the increase in size of the workforce. But this was mainly aimed at the British people. ‘Coloured’ people were excluded due to the ‘white Australia policy. It was to keep Australia white and clean from coloured people.
Aaron McCarthy 11136022 History of Australia Ruan O’Donnell H.P.SS ‘Identify and discuss the main success of Governor Macquarie.’ The aim of this essay is to determine the main success of Major-General Lachlan Macquarie in his role as governor of New-South Wales during the British colonization of Australia. In order to determine what indeed the main success of Macquarie was, this essay will go through his successes within the colony before determining what his main success as Governor was. Macquarie was born on a small island of the coast off Scotland called Ulva on January 31st 1762.

Fight for Native Title: Mabo’s case triumphs Mabo v Queensland (no.2) 1992 On June 3rd 1992, five Murray Islanders home to the Torres Strait Islands in Australia held a legal action against the Government of Queensland in order to claim recognition of the rights to the use, enjoyment and occupancy of their traditional land which had been stolen off them prior to the annexation by the defending government. The judgments made by the High Court of Australia, initiated the legal doctrine of ‘native title’ into the Australian law, which was in favour of the plaintiffs bringing the case to court. This recognized that the Indigenous Australians did in fact have ownership to the possession of the land that was referred to as “terra nullius”, nobody’s

WAS AUSTRALIA A WORKING MAN’S PARADISE? LIVING AND WORKING CONDITIONS IN AUSTRALIA: 1901-1914 * Was Australia an 'egalitarian' (equal) society at this time? * Were we a country where people were more or less equal, no matter what differences there might be in their education, occupation or family background? * Were we a young country that was different to anywhere else in the world? It is widely believed that it was but there is much evidence that suggests that this was a myth.
The novel, Romulus My Father by Raimond Gaita and the poem, Feliks Stryznecki by Peter Stryznecki are two such texts show the importance of a desire to belong. The memoir Romulus my Father portrays the ways in which immigrants of 1950’s country Victoria struggled to find their place in a foreign country, from the perspective of Romulus and Raimond’s personal viewpoints of Belonging. Australia is a multi cultural land. We have had a strong migration from Europe and then Asia. In the earlier days people of a region would form communities but now they seem to have found their place amonst Australian society.
In my opinion, I believe that Australia did develop into an independent nation in the world during 1900-1945. Through the likes of federal policies in 1900-1914, WW1, 1920-1930’s and WW2 Australia increasingly became a more independent country. At the start of Australia’s birth; the federal government had placed many laws that would separate Australia from the world in terms of how they treated the working class. We placed many laws like the eight-hour day and basic wage. These laws protected the working class and we were the leaders throughout the world to place these laws in place.
AUSTRALIAN ASSIMILATION IN THE EYES OF RAIMOND GAITA Australians in the immediate post war years expected all ethnic immigrant groups to assimilate to the Australian way of life. In the biographical account, Romulus my Father, the characters discuss their adaptation to Australian life. During the years between 1950 and 1960 there was a significant emigration from war-torn countries such as: Italy, Yugoslavia and Romania. A mass number from each country arrived to America, Canada or Australia. Those who migrated to Australia were known as `New Australians'; along with these `New Australians' was Romulus Gaita.
State Sovereignty significantly helps Promote and Enforce Human Rights through Domestic Laws in order to relate and apply them to Australian citizens and people within the Australian Boarders. It inherits the ability to make laws without external interference, but this may also mean that Human Rights abuses in a country can occur with resistance to the UN. An example of this is Australia’s signed treaty of the UN Human Rights Declaration. It is Recognised, Legislated, Implemented and Enforced with the recognition of the Abolition of Slavery Article 4, but is accepted in the ‘Sex Industry’ due to the Governments interest in the growth of the Economy. However, State Sovereignty is not absolute as there are certain duties owed to the International
