Sample text

Australia, in turn, has been guided by other countries in competing for skilled labour, in developing its long-stay programs, in reducing impediments facing employers wishing to recruit overseas labour, and in opening avenues for onshore conversion from temporary to permanent status. Moreover, Australia’s concerns about citizenship and challenges to national identity, leading to the adoption of a citizenship test and more stringent requirements for qualification for naturalisation, also follow European developments.

Australia’s nation-builders rejected the class-divided societies and exploitative labour relations of the countries from which they had emigrated. In the first decades of the new federation, they sought to build a land of what they viewed as (racial) equality, based on the idea of a living wage sufficient to sustain a male worker and his wife and children at a level of frugal comfort, within a fair labour market which balanced the rights of employers and employees. Workers without formal equality were excluded from the mainstream of Australian life.

The most extreme example among developed states was in Nazi Germany, where the Nuremburg laws of 1935 defined German nationals as excluding Jews, who had lived in Germany and become assimilated in most respects since the Middle Ages. This example was horrendously extended with mass extermination throughout conquered Europe between 1940 and 1945. While few states deliberately followed it, nationalists revived the practice of ‘ethnic cleansing’ as recently as the Yugoslav civil war of 1995.
