Welfare reform? : following the 'work-first' way. /

by Carney, Terry | Brotherhood of St Laurence.

Publisher: Fitzroy, Vic. Melbourne, Vic. Brotherhood of St Laurence and Centre for Public Policy, University of Melbourne 2007=260 2007Description: 14 p.Other title: Social policy working paper ; no. 7.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: January 2007 Bibliography : 11-14Summary: Terry Carney examines the job-first rationale underpinning the Australian Government s 2005 06 welfare-to-work changes. He traces the move away from Australia s historic welfare settlement, describing it as a move from social security policy to labour market policy. He considers the implications of the 1 July 2006 changes for new claimants for sole parent and disability payments, who are effectively obliged to accept almost any job. Carney argues that what is new for Australia is that these work-first policies are now pursued within a deregulated industrial relations environment and without political debate about alternatives such as the investment state or the third way policies of Britain and parts of Europe.Availability: Items available for loan: Brotherhood of St Laurence (1).

Publisher: Paris, France OECD Publishing 2009Description: 191 p. (Online Resource).Online Access: Website Summary: "The well-being of children is high on the policy agenda across the OECD.

Cost shifting in education : implications for government, the community sector and low income families

by Bond, Sharon | Brotherhood of St Laurence.

Publisher: Fitzroy, Vic. Brotherhood of St Laurence 2009Description: PDF.Online Access: Electronic copy Summary: This report commissioned by the Equity in Education Alliance seeks to quantify in dollars the extent to which the Victorian community service organisations, including emergency relief providers, assist disadvantaged families to meet school education expenses. This costs data supports the argument that the cost of education has been shifted from the state to the individual, and that these costs are then shifted a second time, when disadvantaged families seek help from the community sector. In the Alliance?s view, failure to address educational inequity and ensure that cost is not a barrier to participation shows a lack of regard for human dignity, impedes the future economic and social inclusion of children and threatens the success of the national productivity agenda.Availability: Items available for loan: Brotherhood of St Laurence (1).

Neighbourhood Child Poverty in Sweden /

by Gustafsson, Bjorn | Institute for the Study of Labor | Osterberg, Torun.

Publisher: Bonn, Germany Institute for the Study of Labor 2010Description: PDF.Other title: Institute for the Study of Labor (IZA). Discussion paper.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: April 2010 Bibliography : p. 14Summary: This paper takes a fresh look at child poverty at the neighbourhood level in the three metropolitan regions of Sweden using unique data for 1990, 1996 and 2002. We find that the number of neighbourhoods with high child poverty rates is much larger in 2002 than in 1990, but also that most poor children in the three regions live outside poor neighbourhoods. A disproportionally large fraction of children with backgrounds from low- and middle-income countries live in poor neighbourhoods. Regression analysis shows that high neighbourhood poverty rates are mainly due to parents' low employment and to low parental education.Availability: (1)

Social Inclusion and the Struggle against Child Poverty : Lessons from Australian Experience /

by Cass, Bettina | University of New South Wales. Social Policy Research Centre | Whiteford, Peter.

Publisher: Sydney, N.S.W. University of New South Wales, Social Policy Research Centre (unpub.) 2009Description: PDF.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: Bibliography : p. 10-12 Paper for Expert Group Meeting on Policies to Advance Social Integration United Nations Department of Economic and Social Affairs Division for Social Policy and Development Social Perspective on Development Branch Convened in Preparation for the 48th session of the Commission for Social Development United Nations Headquarters, New York, 2-4 November 2009.Summary: In this paper, our aim is to bring forward the lessons that can be learned from more than two decades of Australian experience in the struggle against child poverty. We focus on child poverty for a number of reasons. The priority given to this issue in public policy debates reflects the fact that children are among the most vulnerable people in the community, and that poverty is associated with a wide range of negative outcomes for parents and children, including higher risks of joblessness, poorer health status and lower educational attainment, elevated financial and emotional stress for lone parents. These links are complex, however, and causation can run both ways - that is, poverty causes disadvantage and disadvantages can also cause poverty.Availability: (1)
