This discussion paper offers 10 case studies of Australian policy initiatives over recent decades. The areas covered were selected on the basis of exhibiting several of the following features: • having a considerable degree of difficulty and complexity, such that they related to several areas of interest and contest; • attending to a long-term issue, and requiring maintenance of policy attention and longevity across multiple terms of government; • having some combination of social, economic and environmental dimensions (that is, a diversity of values and imperatives); • likely requiring the use and coordination of multiple policy instruments; • requiring substantial structural adjustment, transitional support measures, or other compensatory measures; and • requiring multiple points of policy integration, in analysis, design and implementation.
