Monash Migration and Inclusion Centre

The Monash Migration and Inclusion Centre (MMIC) takes an interdisciplinary, evidence based approach to understanding migration and social, economic and cultural inclusion. The 2021 Scanlon Social Cohesion Report, including the Scanlon-Monash Index (SMI) of social cohesion, revealed significant increases in Australians’ agreement with the proposition that ‘multiculturalism has been good for Australia’. Indeed 86% of the survey participants agreed with this statement. Yet this report also uncovered that a sizeable minority of those born overseas continue to experience ethno-racial discrimination.
