2020 CONFERENCE - CALL FOR PAPERS!

The Conference Committee calls for presentations and academic papers to be presented at the Unity In Diversity National Conference 2020.

Conference Theme

The theme of the conference is 'Unity In Diversity' and through this lens, we seek to investigate concepts of social justice, equity, inclusion, identity, cultural diversity, inclusive services and community cohesion.  

The programme will build upon 40 years of community service by the Townsville Intercultural Centre, involving delegates from diverse communities, service providers, religious representatives, government and advocacy groups to engage with key issues affecting social cohesion, inclusive human services and the Australian identity crisis.


The topics we will be covering during the conference fit within 3 major themes

Social Justice          Inclusive Services          Cultural Identity

Session titles for the 2-day conference include;

  •          Overcoming barriers to social justice in Australia.
  •          What is the future of Australian multiculturalism?
  •          The intersection of multiculturalism, community cohesion and culturally inclusive services.
  •          Lived experience – Life as a refugee in Australia.
  •          Dispelling fear – Embracing cultural diversity.
  •          Cultural identity crisis – Who are we as Australians?
