Abstract

This article examines Australian national identity in the context of the Asian Century. It addresses whether national identity plays a significant role in shaping Australia's engagement with Asia. The core of Australian national identity lies in the Western political tradition. Australia is outward-looking country embracing a policy of multiculturalism. The article argues that Australia's identity is increasingly evolving into a more inclusive pluralistic identity. This process is gradual and does not constitute abandoning Australia's core values and traditions. The article outlines the evolution of national identity and examines Labor and Coalition governments' views on identity, Australia's place in the region and globally, as well as the linkage between the national identity and national interest.
