Join Professor Andrew Markus (Monash University), author of the annual Scanlon Foundation social cohesion reports, as he presents key findings from the latest national survey to the Albury-Wodonga community. Professor Markus will share insights about Australia's growing ethnic diversity, including contemporary social issues such as immigration, discrimination and multiculturalism. He will also discuss the current balance of Australian opinion towards multiculturalism and common factors that enhance (or erode) community harmony. This FREE public event will be of interest to local government representatives, community service providers, the education and employment sector, academics and students, members of the police and justice departments, health services, or ANY member of the public who is interested in better understanding the concept of social cohesion.
