Functions and Service Delivery of Non-Government Organisations for Immigrants in Australia
AbstractThis paper evaluates the functions and service delivery of NGOs for immigrants in Australia. It argues that the radical economic restructuring in Western nations has been characterised by massive processes of deinstitutionalisation and decentralisation, with an associated move towards privatisation and the targeting of disadvantaged groups. This has led to a significant reliance on the voluntary sector to assist in the provision of settlement services for immigrant groups. As result in most immigrant receiving nations the use of NGOs as an extension of the state is common.
