The Globalising World is a unit of work that investigates how migration from 1945 to the present day has shaped Australian society. In particular this unit focuses on the impacts of changing immigration policies and the development of human rights and anti-racism movements in Australia.

In this unit, students investigate how racist values in the past have shaped important historical events and developments. Students will also critically analyse how changing attitudes to migration and multiculturalism reflect greater inclusiveness in Australian society.
