Australian Citizenship – your right, your responsibility

In 2015, the Australian Government started a national conversation about how we might all develop a greater appreciation of Australian citizenship and its privileges and obligations. The Australian Government sought the public's views on this issue and on the value of citizenship in Australia.

Submissions closed on 30 June 2015. For background information, see the discussion paper Australian Citizenship – your right, your responsibility.

Citizenship Test Review

In 2008, an independent review of the Australian citizenship test was undertaken. The Citizenship Test Review Committee made 34 recommendations to improve the test. The government fully supported 23 of the recommendations and gave in-principle support to a further four.
