Peter Mares, Not Quite Australian: How Temporary Migration is Changing the Nation in conversation with Frank Bongiorno
Tuesday, August 16, 2016
6:00pm – 7:00pm (18:00 – 19:00)
Permanent migration has long been vital to the story of Australia and today, there are more than one million temporary migrants living in Australia. They work, pay tax and abide by our laws, yet they remain unrecognised as citizens. All the while, this rise in temporary migration is redefining Australian society, from wage wars and healthcare benefits, to broader ideas of national identity and cultural diversity.
