One indicator of the breakdown of social cohesion is conflict between people and groups. When this conflict is expressed along racial or cultural lines, it is referred to as racism. Experiences of racism can be at the individual or group level and they can include discrimination and verbal or physical expressions of hostility.

There is debate about the prevalence and nature of racism in Australia. Experiences of racism, racial conflict and discrimination can be reported to the Australian Human Rights Commission and various interest groups. However, these reports are not collated in a systematic or centralised way.
