Compass - Challenging Unity?
Asylum seekers - the TAMPA incident - Lakemba youths - even the New York outrage... Compass discusses the effects of these incidents on multicultural, multi-faith communities in Australia.
Have recent global and domestic events placed Australia's social contract on multiculturalism under threat? Has the delicate balance of tolerance so necessary to the stability of a multicultural multi-faith nation like Australia been damaged?
Geraldine Doogue talks to former Prime Minister Malcolm Fraser, religious scholar Rachel Kohn, Reverend David Millikan, Robert Fitzgerald, Commissioner of Community Services Commission, and Yasser Soliman, President of the Islamic Council of Victoria about this sudden challenge to our social fabric and asks how we can respond to, and heal, those forces that Challenge Unity?
