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).

All our children: children's entitlements to health, education and community services /

by Harris, Patricia | Brotherhood of St Laurence.

Publisher: Fitzroy, Vic. Brotherhood of St Laurence 1990Description: 61 p. Bibliography: p. 55-61.Other title: Child poverty policy review ; 4.Online Access: DOWNLOAD PDF Summary: The children of Australia are divided by the distribution of Income and "wealth, by deep-seated and enduring cultural differences, by geographical distance and regional inequalities. Such differences have produced entrenched inequalities and led to the abrogation of many children's rights to good quality health, education and community services. The factors that divide children are exacerbated by the practices and institutions of government: federalism and its tensions, problems of co-ordination, centralised bureaucracies said to be distant from the people they are supposed to serve, and the lack of representation of the most economically, socially and culturally "oppressed groups. This paper analyses these divisions and identifies the general policies that are needed if all children's rights to good qualify health, education and community services are to be met. In essence, the paper argues for a consolidation and expansion of the services for children provided by government. It shows how 'the public provision of universally available health, education and community services is' necessary to ensure that all children share in the same spectrum of opportunities and that the consequences of economic and geographic inequality are counteracted Availability: Items available for loan: Brotherhood of St Laurence (1).

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).
