Chapter Summary

This chapter deals with the fifth strategic approach in the students' lobbying campaign, namely the selective and intensive interactions with a range of local Australian institutions over a period of four or so years (from June 1989 to November 1993). It focuses on the People's Republic of China (PRC) students' contacts and interactions with three most important institutions or organizations in Australia. They include the government and politicians, community organizations, and in particular one publicly-funded migrant service center, and the Australian media, both Chinese-language and English-language, which the student leaders and activists regarded as 'the main battlefield' in their collective campaign. James Jupp refers to an immigration lobby as an organized group bringing pressure to bear on various levels of government. He also identifies the principal lobbying groups as the print media, community members, voters, and formalized groups.

Keywords: Australian politicians; James Jupp; People's Republic of China (PRC) students; publicly-funded migrant service center; students' lobbying campaign
