The Dutch ethnic press in Australia

Niels Kraaier

This study focuses on the role of the Dutch ethnic press in Australian society and seeks to make a theoretical contribution to Nancy Fraser’s revision of Jürgen Habermas’s treatise, The Structural Transformation of the Public Sphere. Part of the study is a series of ten interviews with current and former representatives of the Dutch ethnic press as well as with community leaders. Despite being the largest non-English-speaking immigrant group for several decades, migrants from the Netherlands have never appeared to show much interest in either creating or supporting their own media. Findings from this study indicate that migrants from the Netherlands have generally not wished to be identified as newcomers. Instead, they have felt a strong desire to live up to their long-standing image of ‘invisible migrants’, and have actively avoided a designated public sphere.
