Podcast: Australia’s True Colours – What Is Racism?
Tuesday, 11th October 2016 at 11:46 am

In a striking contradiction, Australia is held up the world over as both a shining example of a multicultural success story and as a nation that is racist and hostile to immigrants.

Australia’s racism has roots in its history of colonisation and migration, and, until recent years, racist policies and practices were embedded within Australian laws and institutions, and the debate has become tied up with national identity.

In the first episode in a three-part series, Australia’s True Colours, Not for Podcast investigates what racism is and where it comes from to ultimately find out, is Australia racist?

Featured in this episode:

  • Albert Atkin, author of The Philosophy of Race
  • Neil Levi, senior researcher at the Uehiro Centre for Practical Ethics at Oxford University
  • Priscilla Brice, founder and managing director of All Together Now, Australia’s only national racism prevention charity
  • Kevin Dunn, the dean of the School of Social Science and Psychology at Western Sydney University.
