Child Friendly Cities Initiative /

by United Nations Children's Fund.

Publisher: Florence UNICEF Innocenti Research Centre 2009Description: HTML.Notes: URL: '' Checked: 2/06/2009 11:32:10 AM Status: Live Details: HTTP status 200 - Usual success response Family & early yearsSummary: "UNICEF's Child-Friendly Cities (CFC) initiative was first conceived in response to the United Nations Conference on Environment and Development in 1992 and then more vehemently in the meetings leading up to and around the development of the Habitat II meetings in Istanbul in 1996. It came at a time when it was being recognised that the situation of urban children around the world was of critical concern and that discussions on sustainable development, the management of human settlements and the rights of children could not be done in isolation. The emerging child-friendly cities philosophy was underpinned by the view that to actively implement at a national and local government level the Convention on the Rights of the Child (CRC) you needed a healthy environment, good governance and sustainable development. ; The child-friendly cities initiative according to the framework for action document has emerged in recognition of several worldwide trends including the rapid transformation and urbanization of global societies; the growing responsibilities of municipal and community for their populations in the context of decentralisation; and consequently, the increasing importance of cities and towns within the national political and economic systems. The guiding principle behind the initiative is also that safe and supportive environments nurture children of all ages with opportunities for recreation, learning, social interaction, psychological development and cultural expression and promote the highest quality of life for its young citizens."-- Publisher websiteAvailability: Items available for loan: Brotherhood of St Laurence (1).

Social justice and public policy : seeking fairness in diverse societies /

by Craig, Gary (ed.) | Burchardt, Tania | Gordon, David.

Publisher: Bristol, U.K. Policy Press 2008Description: x, 284 p. ; 24 cm.Summary: "'Social justice' is a contested term, incorporated into the language of widely differing political positions. Those on the Left argue that it requires intervention from the state to ensure equality, at least of opportunity; those on the Right believe that it can be underpinned by the economics of the marketplace with little or no state intervention. To date, political philosophers have made relatively few serious attempts to explain how a theory of social justice translates into public policy." "This important book, drawing on international experience and a distinguished panel of political philosophers and social scientists, addresses what the meaning of social justice is and how it translates into the everyday concerns of public and social policy, in the context of both multiculturalism and globalisation."--BOOK JACKET.Availability: Items available for loan: Brotherhood of St Laurence (1).

Submission to Inquiry into Liveability Options in Outer Suburban Melbourne : Outer Suburban / Interface Services and Development Committee (OSISDC) / Sonia Martin (BSL)

by Martin, Sonia | Brotherhood of St Laurence.

Publisher: Fitzroy, Vic. Brotherhood of St Laurence 2011Description: 22 p. PDF.Other title: Brotherhood of St Laurence submission to Inquiry into Liveability Options in Outer Suburban Melbourne.Online Access: DOWNLOAD PDF Notes: This submission was written by Sonia Martin, with contributions from George Myconos, Sharon Bond, Victoria Johnson, Nadine Cameron, Helen Kimberley, Iris Levin, Sally James and Paul Smyth, and edited by Deborah Patterson. Summary: The Brotherhood of St Laurence recognises the critical intersections between housing, employment, education, health, welfare, and access to services and facilities. We also recognise the complex challenges the state government faces in addressing the interconnected issues of population growth and housing affordability. The Brotherhood maintains that planned social infrastructure is the foundation of economically and socially inclusive development and is not a residual, post hoc response to economic and social system failures. Critical to this endeavour is a social investment plan that recognises appropriate urban change as an entitlement of citizens across the life course and ensures that all have what they need to lead flourishing lives. Supportive governance structures are essential. We support a model of collaborative governance across all tiers of government that allows for meaningful determination at the local level and builds capacity to work together. We have focused this response to the Terms of Reference on population, private housing, and health and services delivery issues and have limited our comments on infrastructure issues. Due to the limited local data on median house prices and population growth in outer urban areas specifically, we have not addressed Term of Reference 3 separately, but have included some data in other sections of our submission.Availability: (1)

The main sources of data for the study include an overview of the literature and available statistics, consultations with Brotherhood service providers, state and local social planners and four focus groups with residents in different outer-urban locations (Craigieburn, Broadmeadows, Frankston and Hastings).
