The National Social Science Survey is the most comprehensive national sample survey of social and political attitudes ever undertaken in Australia and, in addition to updating some earlier work with fresh evidence for the s, the book presents a number of completely new analyses of topics that have not until now been subject to systematic analysis of this sort.

A number of questions were used to test attitudes toward asylum seekers, refugees and Australia’s border protection policies. We found that 36 per cent of respondents stated they had positive or somewhat positive feelings toward refugees in Australia, with 44 per cent of respondents indicating their feelings were neutral (see Table 1).

Immigrants, as a group, are frequently described in ways, such as vermin or disease, that portray them as less than human. This type of dehumanizing language leads to negative emotional responses and negative attitudes toward the dehumanized group.

This paper examines how the dehumanization of immigrants influences immigration policy by:   The report shows us that fewer than 5 per cent of Australians hold negative attitudes towards migrants from English-speaking and European countries.

This is good news because, in the s and s, it was continental Europeans who were subject to hostility from the Australian public. Islam and other religions. 51% of Australians had unfavourable sentiments towards Islam, and only 10% looked upon the religion positively, making Australia more negative than 17 of the other 22 countries surveyed.
