Research note: Asian-Australian experiences of discrimination

Discrimination Multiculturalism Racism Australia


In the August 2019 ANUpoll, the ANU Centre for Social Research and Methods and the Social Research Centre collected data from more than two-and-a-half thousand Australian adults about their experiences of discrimination, their beliefs in the level of discrimination that currently occurs within Australian society and workplaces, and their support for particular policy interventions. The data suggest that Asian-Australians experience high rates of discrimination, that the general population believes this to be the case, and that at least some of this discrimination relates to gaining leadership positions. There is not, however, large support for policy interventions related to discrimination experienced by Asian-Australians or others.
