Biographical details

Professor Christine Inglis, Director of the Multicultural and Migration Research Centre, has been associated with the University of Sydney since 1975 when she joined the Department of Education and then the Research Institute for Asia and the Pacific before joining Sociology and Social Policy in 2006. Since 2010 she has been Editor of the highly ranked journal International Sociology which is published by SAGE for the International Sociology Association.

Research interests

Christine’s major research focus has been on migration and ethnic relations with particular reference to Australia and Southeast Asia. She has led a number of major ARC research projects, including most recently on Transnationalism and Citizenship which is examining the experiences of transnationalism among Turkish, Chinese and Hong Kong born in Sydney and Brisbane.

The role of education has been an important area explored in her work. In additional to writing on the policy implications of ethnic diversity for the International Institute of Educational Planning of UNESCO she has also focussed extensively on the experiences of second generation immigrants in Australia which has led to several publications. These include a study funded by the Department of Immigration and Citizenship, comparing the experiences of Turkish and Lebanese Second Generation youth in Sydney and Melbourne. This study which developed out of her extensive involvement with Turkish settlement in Australia is associated with the Dutch-based TIES (The Integration of the European Second Generation) Project which compares the outcomes for second generation youth in a number of European countries. The Australian results which were contained in a report to DIAC are now being revised for publication in a book to be published by Amsterdam University Press.

Associations

A frequent reviewer for journals in the area of migration and ethnic relations, Christine is on the editorial board of Diversities and the British Journal of Sociology. She has played a major role on the executives of scholarly associations including the Asian Studies Association of Australia and the ANU?s Centre for the Study of the Chinese Southern Diaspora as well as the International Sociological Association where she has been President of its Research Committee on Ethnic, Race and Minority Relations as well as the first Australian member of the ISA?s Council. From 1998 to 2002 she was also ISA?s Vice-President with responsibility for publications.
