This online edition of the New Zealand Directory on Cultural Diversity,
published by the Centre for Citizenship Education (CCE) as its 2005 partnership
project with the Diversity Action Programme, will be enhanced in cooperation
The cooperation talks were sparked by meetings convened first by the
New Zealand Police, when they launched their publication on ethnic diversity,
and then by Wellington Jewish community B'nai Brith organisation at which
Jewish and Muslim women spoke about their perspectives.
For citizenship education
The Directory on Cultural Diversity first edition, published on NZ Race Relations Day, March 2005, incorporates CCE’s annual Directory for Citizenship Education.
This brings information on government departments, crown entities, state owned enterprises, information and services and help with rights and the law alongside content focused on helping culturally diverse New Zealanders and host society agencies work with each other.
Ten point plan
This in turn helps strengthen cultural diversity – a goal of the ten point Diversity Action Programme developed at Parliament in August 2004 in response to challenges to New Zealand’s racial harmony.
The purpose of the Directory on Cultural Diversity is to provide information and pathways to key organisations involved in promoting cultural diversity in New Zealand.
Information about this enhanced Directory for Citizenship Education was made available to participants in the national diversity forum held at Parliament in August 2005.
The CCE is working with project partners, publishers and account executives to produce the updated and expanded Directory online and in such other formats as may be possible.
The Directory on Cultural Diversity is supported by the DecisionMaker Guide to Parliament and Government, which is the guide to Parliament, government, the law and the big picture, first published by Asia Pacific Economic News Ltd in consultation with Parliamentary Services in 1990.
