Submissions
Topics Inclusion

Diversity Council Australia has made a submission in response to the Senate Legal and Constitutional Affairs Committee’s Inquiry into Nationhood, national identity and democracy.

This submission discusses the Terms of Reference from the perspective of DCA research and previous submissions to inquiries.

This submission argues that inclusion should be an important consideration for policies in relation to Australia’s nationhood, national identity and democracy. Specifically, that creating an inclusive Australia should be the aim of policy makers and that they should use the principles of inclusion – ensuring that all citizens are respected, connected, and able to contribute and progress – to measure success.
