What Is ‘Multiculturalism’?

According to the Australian Government of Immigration and Citizenship multiculturalism is “In a descriptif sens multicultural is simply a term which describes the cultural and ethnic diversity of comtemporary Australia. We are, and will remain, a multicultural society. As a public policy multiculturalism encompass government measures designed to respond to that diversity. It plays no part in migrant selection. It is a policy for managing the consequances of cultural diversity in the interests of the individual and society as a whole.”

Then this term of multiculturalism means policies and practices that recognise and respond to the ethnic diversity of Australia community and have as their primary objects the creation of conditions under which all groups and member of the community may:

  • Live and work together harmoniously.
  • Fully and effectively participate in, and employ their skills and talants for the benefit of, the economic, social and cultural life of the community.
  • Maintain and give expression to their distinctive cultural heritages.
