PDF.Online Access: DOWNLOAD PDF Notes: The 20th annual Sambell Oration, Wednesday 17 October 2001 at the Shell Conference Centre, Melbourne Summary: 53 years ago this December, a war-ravaged and war-weary world ushered in a new international order with what was called the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. It was a bold and brilliant document full of words, phrases and concepts that everyone wanted to hear. It spoke of recognising the inherent dignity and the equal and inalienable rights of all members of the human family as the foundation of freedom, justice and peace in the world. It observed that disregard and contempt for human rights had resulted in barbarous acts which have outraged the conscience of mankind. It called for the advent of a world in which human beings shall enjoy freedom of speech and belief, and freedom from fear and want, as the highest aspiration of the common people. It declared as essential that human rights should be protected by the rule of law.Availability: Items available for loan: Brotherhood of St Laurence (1).

"When the pressure is really on": the interim report of the income expenditure study : study of changes in income and expenditure among low income families /

by Trethewey, Jenny.

Publisher: Fitzroy, Vic. Brotherhood of St Laurence 1986Description: 81 p.Online Access: DOWNLOAD PDF Summary: The release of this interim report coincides with the 1986/87 Federal Budget. A decline in our national income created by serious trade problems had led the Prime Minister to appeal to all Australians to accept a lower standard of living. Pressure to reduce government spending has intensified with pressure to cut welfare programmes. The Brotherhood of St Laurence has informed the Prime Minister of the serious consequences of these proposals. The preliminary interim findings of a research study on fifty families who are reliant on either a social security income or low wages exemplifies the impact of welfare cuts on poor people. This report describes what it means to be an Australian family living on a low income. In so doing, this report shows that these Australian families just cannot reduce their standard of living any further. Availability: Items available for loan: Brotherhood of St Laurence (1).

A cost benefit analysis of early childhood intervention : evidence from a randomised evaluation of a parenting programme /

by O'Neill, Donal | Institute for the Study of Labor.

Publisher: Bonn, Germany Institute for the Study of Labor 2009Description: PDF.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: IZA DP No. 4518Summary: A number of researchers and policy makers have recently argued that the most effective way of dealing with long-run disadvantage and the intergenerational transmission of poverty is through early childhood intervention and in particular policies aimed at supporting the family in early childhood development. In this paper we carry out a randomised evaluation of one such programme aimed at improving the skills and parenting strategies of parents, particularly those who find their child's behaviour difficult or challenging. Our evaluation shows that the treatment significantly reduced behavioural problems in young children when measured 6 months after the intervention. Furthermore our detailed cost analysis, combined with a consideration of the potential long-run benefits associated with the programme, suggest that the long-run rate of return to society from this programme is likely to be relatively high.Availability: Items available for loan: Brotherhood of St Laurence (1).
