Synopsis Asians and the New Multiculturalism in Aotearoa New Zealand presents thought-provoking new research on New Zealand's fastest-growing demographic - the geographically, nationally and historically diverse Asian communities. What kind of multicultural framework best suits New Zealand's rapidly expanding ethnic diversity? Can the Treaty of Waitangi - initially set up to accommodate British settlers and to recognise the tangata whenua - serve as the basis for New Zealand's immigration policy in the new millennium? Could all citizens embrace multiculturalism? Aotearoa New Zealand is a fusion of indigenous, settler and immigrant populations. This collection examining Asian communities in Aotearoa highlights the unresolved tensions between a dynamic biculturalism and the recognition of other ethnic minorities that are increasingly asserting themselves. Multiculturalism and Asian-ness are addressed together for the first time in this articulate addition to the ongoing debate about the population diversity of Aotearoa New Zealand.
