Australia, Truly Asia
Dr Ian Cook, Senior Lecturer Murdoch University Australia
Australia's 2016 census released in June revealed some things that aren't too surprising. Like how the country will soon become more Asian, and less European. Australia's policy change back in the 70s to move away from the White Australia policy meant that migration to the country would take a dramatic turn and the results, some 40 years later, is evident in the findings of this latest census. We find out what this change in Australia's make-up means and what sort of Australia we can expect moving forward.
