This project aims to reveal the prevalence, experience and variations of ethnic and religious mixed marriage in Australia, which will guide policies that facilitate social integration and cohesion. The implications of a lack of integration have been demonstrated by recent events in Europe and US, which reflect strong anti-immigration tendencies. This project expects to generate new understanding in social integration by using new theoretical and analytical models and combining quantitative and qualitative approaches. The intended research outcome is to produce new sociological knowledge of ethnic/religious mixed-marriages that will advance cultural understanding and assist policies that foster social integration of cultural groups.
