Publisher: Frenchs Forest, N.S.W. Pearson Education 2009Description: xxii, 297 p.Notes: Index : p. 279-295 Includes bibliography. Contents: Introducing a 'what's the problem represented to be?' approach -- Rethinking policy analysis: theory and politics -- Welfare, 'youth' and unemployment -- 'Dangerous' consumptions: drugs/alcohol and gambling policy -- Crime and justice -- Health, wellbeing and the social determinants of health -- Population, immigration, citizenship: 'securing' a place in the world -- The limits of equality: anti-discrimination and 'special measures' -- The ambivalence of education: HECS and lifelong learning -- 'Knowledge production' in the 'information society': media and research policy -- Conclusion: 'A right to the problems'Summary: This book offers a novel approach to thinking about public policy and a new, distinctive methodology for analysing policy. It introduces a set of six questions that probe how 'problems' are represented in policies, followed by an injunction to apply the questions to one's own policy proposals. This form of analysis, it suggests, is crucial to understanding how policy works, how we are governed, and how the practice of policy-making implicitly constitutes us as subjects.Availability: Items available for loan: Brotherhood of St Laurence (1).
