Out of the policy vacuum : putting housing back on the public policy agenda / Terry Burke

by Burke, Terry | Swinburne University of Technology.

Publisher: Melbourne, Vic. 2001Description: 25 p. PDF.Other title: Oswald Barnett oration.Online Access: DOWNLOAD PDF Notes: [F. OSWALD BARNETT ORATION (8th : 11 September 2001 : Melbourne)]Summary: The Oration and web content is structured into two parts. The actual Oration overviews the different contexts facing Oswald Barnett and ourselves and outlines a rationale for contemporary housing reform. The appendix contains a brief set of programs and policy ideas consistent with such a new direction in housing policy. They are suggestive of the way we can move forward, and are offered to encourage debate. Some may seem impossible in the current political climate, but this was no doubt what was said of Oswald Barnett’s ideas over seventy years ago. However, as houses – like all bricks and mortar – tend to outlast politicians, policy makers and political fashions, we must not be constrained by short-term impediments but develop a long-term perspective on what we want from our housing system and how we are to achieve it.Availability: Items available for loan: Brotherhood of St Laurence (1).

Our kids : the American Dream in crisis / Robert D. Putnam.

by Putnam, Robert D.

Publisher: New York : Simon & Schuster, 2015Description: 386 p.Summary: "A groundbreaking examination of the growing inequality gap from the bestselling author of Bowling Alone: why fewer Americans today have the opportunity for upward mobility. It's the American dream: get a good education, work hard, buy a house, and achieve prosperity and success. This is the America we believe in--a nation of opportunity, constrained only by ability and effort. But during the last twenty-five years we have seen a disturbing "opportunity gap" emerge. Americans have always believed in equality of opportunity, the idea that all kids, regardless of their family background, should have a decent chance to improve their lot in life. Now, this central tenet of the American dream seems no longer true or at the least, much less true than it was. Robert Putnam--about whom The Economist said, "his scholarship is wide-ranging, his intelligence luminous, his tone modest, his prose unpretentious and frequently funny"--offers a personal but also authoritative look at this new American crisis. Putnam begins with his high school class of 1959 in Port Clinton, Ohio. By and large the vast majority of those students--"our kids"--went on to lives better than those of their parents. But their children and grandchildren have had harder lives amid diminishing prospects. Putnam tells the tale of lessening opportunity through poignant life stories of rich and poor kids from cities and suburbs across the country, drawing on a formidable body of research done especially for this book. Our Kids is a rare combination of individual testimony and rigorous evidence. Putnam provides a disturbing account of the American dream that should initiate a deep examination of the future of our country"--; "The best-selling author of Bowling Alone offers a groundbreaking examination of the American Dream in crisis: how and why opportunities for upward mobility are diminishing, jeopardizing the prospects of an ever larger segment of Americans"--Availability: No items available Checked out (1).

What next for place-based initiatives to tackle disadvantage? : a practical look at recent lessons for Australian public policy. /

by Brotherhood of St Laurence.

Publisher: Fitzroy, Vic. Brotherhood of St Laurence 2015Online Access: DOWNLOAD PDF Notes: Written by Nicole Rees, Senior Manager of Public Policy, Brotherhood of St Laurence August 2015.Summary: This paper provides a brief overview of the practical learnings from recent place-based initiatives in Australia to tackle socioeconomic disadvantage. It pulls together the findings of topical reports, evaluations of place-based initiatives and insights gleaned from interviews we have conducted with key people involved in some of these initiatives. The paper is a thought starter about how our public policy environment can foster the next generation of place-based approaches. While Australia is a wealthy country, it has places of deep and persistent disadvantage that profoundly affect the life chances and the wellbeing of the people living there. High concentrations of poverty and social exclusion are present in many remote and some rural communities, and in certain regional and metropolitan urban areas. And there are clear warning signs that the growth corridors of our major cities—with their rapid population growth and comparatively poor social capital, civic connections, transport and employment opportunities—are at risk of entrenched disadvantage.

by Deeming, Christopher (ed.) | Smyth, Paul (ed.).

Publisher: Bristol, U.K Policy Press 2018Description: xv, 350 p.Summary: Christopher Deeming and Paul Smyth together with internationally renowned contributors propose that the merging of the ‘social investment’ and ‘inclusive growth and development’ agendas is forging an unprecedented global social policy framework.
