Social unrest is emerging in Australia due to the continued promotion and endorsement of exclusive constructions of Australian identity.

Overall, the findings from this research highlight what is needed to improve the construction and promotion of inclusive Australian identity, in hopes that ongoing, problematic, and damaging issues relating to social conflict will diminish over time.
