Course Description: As industrialized societies become more diverse, there is a growing need to understand how ‘racial,’ ethnic and religious minorities participate in politics and society. This course focuses on the political and social inclusion of migrant and ethnic minority (MEM) groups in Australia and other countries. It considers such questions as: Are there differences in the participation and voting behaviors of members from migrant and ethnic minority groups, compared to other citizens? Is there such a thing as the ‘ethnic vote’? What are the political behaviors of ethnic, ‘racial’ and religious minorities in comparison to citizens from majority groups? What are the sources of mobilization for minority political participation? What are the individual, cultural and structural barriers to full participation among MEM groups within Western democracies? The course considers these questions in both an Australian and comparative context, and looks carefully at how contextual differences matter.
