Inside the Welfare Lobby examines ACOSS through relevant case studies and source material to draw attention to: -- the role that interest groups play in the formation of government policy agendas -- the lobbying strategies used by welfare advocacy groups to influence welfare state outcomes -- the relationship between the welfare sector and other key lobby groups and political parties -- the impact of key contemporary influences such as neo-liberalism and economic globalization which have arguably transformed the political context within which welfare advocacy groups operate.Availability: Items available for loan: Brotherhood of St Laurence (2).
