The idea that Australia is, in the words of former Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull, ‘the most successful multicultural nation in the world’ is important to the nation’s sense of identity, but at times it seems that multiculturalism is more an article of faith than a work in progress.
Australia's population has virtually doubled since 1975, and in recent years the rules around migration have been altered significantly. The apparent certainties of Australia as a permanent settler society are giving way to the precarious churn of temporary migration.
Who We Are, co-edited by Julianne Schultz and Peter Mares, gives voice to Australia’s changing reality, explores the big issues of belonging, citizenship and participation, and teases out how contemporary Australia might evolve. Contributors include: Tim Soutphommasane, Mirandi Riwoe, Randa Abdel-Fattah, James Button, Maria Tumarkin, Andrew Jakubowicz, Favel Parret, Laura Jan Shore, Donna Lu and many more.
