Genesis of Australian immigrant policy
Institute of Social Sciences, Belgrade
Keywords: immigration policy; society; integration; multiculturalism; assimilation
Abstract
Australia is typical country of immigration. Therefore, process of adaptation is great issue in Australian society. When the immigrant arrives and stays in a new community, attention will be concentrated upon three aspects of change and their determinants. The first of these aspects concerns what happens to him during the initial period of readjustment and resettlement. When successful this period concludes with the immigrant experiencing a general state of satisfaction with his new life. Given that he feels more satisfied than dissatisfied the foundation exists for the growth of a new sense of attachment or belonging to his adopted community. Where this new sense of attachment develops, if it does, the immigrant may be described as having reached the identification level of assimilation. When major changes in attitudes, beliefs and behaviors have actually occurred then the new group member may be described as having reached the acculturation level of assimilation.
