Abstract

[Extract] A continued critical examination of racism is fundamentally important to Australia. As a multicultural nation, acceptance of diversity is the cornerstone of the progress of the nation in many aspects including business, trade, education, workforce, industry, arts and social elements. Without a focus on racism, the hard edge issues that confront our society cannot be addressed. It is from this perspective that the 2nd International Conference on Racisms in the New World Order: Realities of Culture, Colour and Identity was jointly organized by the Centre for Multicultural and Community Development, University of the Sunshine Coast and the Institute for Community, Ethnicity and Policy Alternatives, Victoria University. The Conference was attended by national and international participants, and included academics, community development workers, policy makers and other government officials, media as well as community members who experience racism. The conference covered four themes: • Manifestations of Racism

• Responses to Racism

• Nationalism

• Developing Anti-Racist Futures
