SBS CQ Cultural Intelligence - The Media and Diversity Debate
Media practitioners, commentators, academics, advocates and political animals share their unique perspectives on debates about asylum seekers, immigration and multiculturalism that have dominated Australian screens, airwaves and front pages in 2011.

PART THREE: MULTICULTURALISM AND MEDIA IN 2011
How has the asylum seeker debate influenced perceptions of multiculturalism? What can we learn from looking to the past? Who is responsible in this debate?
