Australia

With almost half of its total resident population either born in a foreign country or the child of such a person, Australia is one of the world's quintessential immigration countries. Moreover, in mid-2008 there were also over 800.000 people in Australia on a temporary basis and a million Australians living overseas on a permanent or long-term basis. A majority of its resident population perceives migration as having a positive economic and social impact. In his overview over history and present of Australian immigration policies, Graeme Hugo explains how policies aim at maintaining positive impacts (version from September 2010).
