The WA Migration Update one day conference, now in its 8th year, brings together academia, communities, not-for-profits, the private sector and government, to share experiences and research on migration and settlement, and improve understandings of these critical contemporary issues.

This is an important year for migration and multiculturalism. Our theme, ‘Beyond Racism’, recognises migrant experiences of racism, as well as programs building inclusion and resilience. This year the focus is on the recent government reviews of Australia’s multiculturalism framework, and migration policies, as well as hearing the latest Scanlon social cohesion survey results.

The program explores the following questions:

  • To what extent are Australia’s migration and settlement systems inclusive?
  • What does it mean to move ‘beyond racism’?
  • What are migrants’ and ethnic minorities’ experiences of inclusion and exclusion?
  • How are services and communities challenging racism and promoting inclusion?

Sessions include Racism and social cohesion in Australia: trends, challenges and opportunities; the Australian Migration Review; and Australia’s Multiculturalism Framework.

As usual we will have a combination of dynamic and informed speakers and panellists from government, community, service provision, business and academia, showcasing their knowledge, policies and experiences.
