National Statement on Religious Diversity

The 3rd edition of The National Statement on Religious Diversity was launched in 2019.
Excerpt from the Prime Minister’s Foreword to the Third Edition: “The Statement on Religious Diversity sets out the principles that such a society is built upon. It was first published in 2007 and endorsed by a wide range of faith communities, with a second edition following in 2009. This third edition reflects the changes in our religious demography during the last decade.

We are more diverse than Australia, Britain and Canada, and markedly more so than the United States of America.”
