Abstract
My final paper will deal with the concepts of multiculturalism, nationalism and racism in Australia. Moreover, I will discuss the notion of imagined nation or imagined community which people employ while carrying out racist practices and in what ways are these racist practices manifested in Australia. Also, I will deal with questions: Why are people in Australia so opposed to multiculturalism? What were the reasons behind the introduction of The White Australia Policy? Furthermore, I'll discuss the role of spatial power and spatial management in connection to racist violence, e.g. people of other ethnicities told to „go home“and classified as undesirable by Australians. Aboriginal Australians, as the oldest culture in Australia, did not satisfy the ideal of White Australia fantasy and thus have experienced all forms of violence. Sadly, the consequences of their ill-treatment are still recognized in present. With all that said, it is understandable that many are dubious about the fact that Australia had become a tolerant multicultural society despite its racial past.

Moj završni rad će se baviti pojmom multikulturalizma, nacionalizma i rasizma u Australiji. Osim toga, analizirat ću pojam imaginarne nacije ili imaginarne zajednice kojim se ljudi služe kod vršenja rasističkih postupaka i na koje načine se ti rasistički postupci očituju u Australiji. Također ću se baviti pitanjima poput: Zašto su ljudi u Australiji poprilično protiv multikulturalizma? Koji se razlozi nalaze iza uvođenja Politike bijele Australije?. Nadalje ću raspravljati o ulozi prostornog upravitelja i upravljanju prostora u svezi s rasističkim nasiljem, kao što su npr. situacije u kojima se ljudima druge narodnosti kaže neka idu doma i klasificira kao nepoželjne. Australski Aboridžini, kao najstarija civilizacija u Australiji, nisu zadovoljili ideal Fantazije o bijeloj Australiji i zbog toga su doživjeli sve vrste nasilja. Nažalost, posljedice njihovog lošeg postupanja su vidljive i danas. S obzirom na sve rečeno, razumljivo je da mnogi sumnjaju u činjenicu da je Australija postala tolerantno multikulturalno društvo usprkos svojoj rasističkoj prošlosti.
