Australian government launches multicultural framework review


The Albanese Government has announced the commencement of the Multicultural Framework Review, delivering on an election commitment to examine the function and framework of Australia’s multicultural policies. 

The Review coincides with the 50th anniversary of the Whitlam Government’s 1973 report ‘A Multi-cultural Society for the Future’, which marked the birth of contemporary multicultural Australia.  

Drawing on the knowledge of culturally and linguistically diverse communities from around Australia, the Review will assess what Commonwealth multicultural policy could look like, to ensure no one is left behind, and everyone feels that they truly belong.  

Speaking in Sydney’s inner-west today, Immigration Minister Andrew Giles announced the panel of multicultural Australians who have been appointed to lead and co-author the Review, Dr Bulent Hass Dellal AO as Chair, alongside Nyadol Nyuon OAM and Christine Castley. 

Mr Giles said: “The Albanese Labor Government is turning the page on nine shameful years of fearmongering and division surrounding multicultural Australians. This review is a concrete step towards an inclusive country where we are able to harness the talents of all Australians.” 

Multicultural Framework Review Chair, Dr Bulent Hass Dellal AO, said: “The Multicultural Framework Review is a timely review and an opportunity to ensure that our Multicultural Principles and practices are responsive, relevant, adaptable and inclusive of all Australians moving into the future.” 

A Reference Group to support the panel will include eminent Australians from diverse backgrounds, as well as representatives from key non-government stakeholders. A full list of Reference Group members can be found here

The Review is expected to deliver its final report with recommendations to the Minister for Immigration, Citizenship, and Multicultural Affairs by March 2024.
