Multiculturalism and citizenship: silencing the migrant voice

MairiAnne McKenzie (this issue) worries that multiculturalism may be going too far but Alastair Davidson believes that it has not gone far enough. He argues that multiculturalism has been confined to questions of lifestyle and welfare and that it has left Australian political and constitutional arrangements untouched. Migrant voices which might have spoken on questions of political and legal rights have been silenced. This means that Australia has missed opportunities to reshape its political institutions according to a European Continental model. Copyright. Monash University and the author/s
