Summary The Victorian Government has a strong and demonstrated commitment to strengthening social cohesion and resilient communities by seeking to promote community safety and wellbeing and mitigate anti-social behaviours, including any form of racial, ethnic and religious exclusivism. Driven by this commitment, the Social Cohesion and Community Resilience Ministerial Taskforce commissioned the Centre for Cultural Diversity and Wellbeing (CCDW) at Victoria University, in partnership with the Australia Multicultural Foundation (AMF), to undertake a systematic stocktake review and analysis of (a) recent research and (b) program initiatives (2011-2015) on the role of social cohesion and community resilience in redressing the risk of socially harmful forms of exclusivism, including violent extremism and racism. The Stocktake Report identifies key themes and findings from the literature and selected programs reviewed, as well as critical knowledge gaps and practical recommendations that can guide Victoria’s policymaking, research and program investment and direction. The Report is divided into two main parts: a systematic literature review and a selected program review, as well as sections on methodology, knowledge gaps and recommendations. -- page 3
