Organised by Monash Asia Institute, Monash University with partnership of Immigration Museum, Melbourne and Immigration Museum Tokyo (pilot program)

With the intensification of human mobility and migration, the fostering of cultural diversity and inclusion is a key issue in a globalised world. Japan is no exception. Featuring Immigration Museum in Melbourne and Immigration Museum Tokyo (pilot project), whose establishment was inspired by the former, this symposium will discuss the significant role of the museum in promoting cultural diversity and inclusion in multicultural cities. We will discuss how to promote exchange and build up collaborative relations between Immigration Museum in Melbourne and Immigration Museum Tokyo and advance Australia-Japan bilateral relations on common ground of trans-Asian migration and cultural diversity.

This symposium is part of the project, Migrant Diplomacy: Exchange between Immigration Museum in Melbourne and Tokyo, which is supported by the Australian Government through the Australia-Japan Foundation of the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade.
