Overview

Asians and the New Multiculturalism in Aotearoa New Zealand presents thought-provoking new research on New Zealand's fastest-growing demographic: the geographically, nationally, and historically diverse Asian communities. This collection examines the unresolved tensions between a dynamic biculturalism and the recognition of other ethnic minorities by looking at such questions as What kind of multicultural framework best suits New Zealand's rapidly expanding ethnic diversity? Can the Treaty of Waitangi, initially set up to accommodate British settlers and to recognize the tangata whenua, serve as the basis for New Zealand's immigration policy in the new millennium? And Can all citizens embrace multiculturalism? Multiculturalism and Asian-ness are addressed together for the first time in this articulate addition to the ongoing debate about the population diversity of Aotearoa New Zealand.
