Citizens as partners : information, consultation and public participation in policy-making. / OECD

by Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development.

Publisher: Paris, France : OECD Publishing, 2001Description: 267 p. (Online Resource).Online Access: Website Summary: Governments are in a crisis of identity, some would say legitimacy, with election turnouts low in many OECD countries and a widespread feeling of disenchantment among citizens with government and the democratic process. Can governments do something to change this? Certainly, doing nothing is not an answer. What every country needs is more transparency, more consultation and more participation. This book is a unique source of comparative information on this challenging subject. It examines a wide range of country experiences, offers examples of good practice, highlights innovative approaches and identifies promising tools (including new information technologies). A set of ten guiding principles for engaging citizens in policy-making is proposed.Availability: Items available for loan: Brotherhood of St Laurence (1).

by Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development.

Publisher: Paris, France Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development 2006Description: 146 p.Online Access: OECD iLibrary (Read only) Notes: At head of title: Ageing and employment policies Includes bibliographical references (p. 143-146)Summary: This international report draws out the main lessons from reviews in 21 countries of policies to improve employment prospects for older workers. ; The writers argue that to encourage people to work longer, there must be strong financial incentives—and subsidies for early retirement (and obstacles to part-time work) need to be eliminated. Wage-setting and employment practices will need to be altered to foster hiring and retaining of older workers; and older workers will need help to improve their employability. Overall, a major shift in attitudes of both employers and employees will be required. ; This analysis of policy trends, though not focusing on the impact on low-income groups, provides useful context for the BSL’s work on retirement and ageing.Availability: Items available for loan: Brotherhood of St Laurence (1).

by Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development.

Publisher: Paris, France : OECD Publishing, 2006Description: 441 p. (Online Resource).Online Access: Website Notes: This series of reports provides valid, timely and comparable international information on early childhood education and care. It aims to support countries in reviewing and redesigning policies to improve their early childhood services and systems. The series includes thematic reports on key policy areas, reviews of individual country policies and practices, as well as key indicators on early childhood education and care.Summary: This review of early childhood education and care (ECEC) in twenty OECD countries describes the social, economic, conceptual and research factors that influence early childhood policy. These include increasing women’s labour market participation; reconciling work and family responsibilities on a more equitable basis for women; confronting the demographic challenges faced by OECD countries; and in particular, addressing issues of access, quality, diversity, child poverty and educational disadvantage. Starting Strong II outlines the progress made by the participating countries in responding to the key aspects of successful ECEC policy outlined in the previous volume, Starting Strong (OECD, 2001). It offers many examples of new policy initiatives adopted in the ECEC field. In their conclusion, the authors identify ten policy areas for further critical attention from governments. The book also presents country profiles, which give an overview of ECEC systems in all 20 participating countries.Availability: Items available for loan: Brotherhood of St Laurence (1).

The labour market integration of immigrants in Australia

by Liebig, Thomas | Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development.

Publisher: Paris, France Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development 2007Description: 63 p. (Online Resource).Online Access: Website Summary: The labour market integration of immigrants in Australia is shaped by the country’s long tradition as an immigration country and its selection policy. Over the post-war period, the main origin countries of immigration to Australia have shifted from English-speaking countries to other OECD countries, and, since the mid-1970s, to non-OECD countries. Parallel to this shift, immigration policy to Australia became increasingly skills focused, which has partly countered the less favourable employment outcomes of migrants from these countries. This increasing selection has resulted in a situation in which the skills structure of the immigrant population, particularly of those from non-OECD countries, is well above that of the native-born...Availability: Items available for loan: Brotherhood of St Laurence (1).
