International Research Network on Multiculturalism

Home

Welcome to the International Research Network on Multiculturalism

The International Research Network on Multiculturalism is an academic forum aimed at promoting and disseminating interdisciplinary research on the multifaceted multicultural research agenda. It is hosted by Deakin University's Centre for Citizenship and Globalisation and comprised of scholars, state and community actors specialising in the fields of multiculturalism, intercultural and interreligious relations across diverse disciplines and geographical regions.

About the Network

The IRNM was founded in 2012, following the 3rd International Symposium on Multiculturalism: Reclaiming Multiculturalism, held by the Centre for Citizenship and Globalisation at Deakin University, Melbourne, Australia. The 2nd International Symposium on Multiculturalism: Reframing Multiculturalism for the 21st Century's Realities, was held in at the University of Ottawa, Canada in 2011 and the 1st International Symposium on Multiculturalism: Comparative Multiculturalism from Transnational and Global Perspectives was also held at Deakin University, Melbourne, Australia, in 2010.

The IRNM builds on the discussions of these symposia and will continue to debate multicultural, intercultural and interreligious policies, practices, theories, histories and controversies. It provides an online depository of research pertaining to multiculturalism and links to participants' research profiles, local and international events and new publications. It also hosts an elist disseminating this information to its members.

IRNM membership is free and by invitation or application only. We welcome new applications from established scholars, early career and higher degree researchers who are working on multiculturalism. Please contact the network for more information about membership.
