Diversity Issues


Multiculturalism is a reality in today’s ethnically diverse societies. As globalisation increases so too does migration as people settle in new countries for a better life. At the same time dangerous conflicts are increasing forced migration. Our societies are becoming culturally, ethnically, linguistically and religiously diverse.

On our Diversity Issues section, we’ll be talking about cultural diversity, and the ways it matters to everyone. We’re stepping outside of academia and talking about issues that matter on the ground to communities and families. We’re also sharing our CACR stories – Fellows, Students, Interns and Alumni.
