Paul Smyth, General Manager Research and Policy Centre Brotherhood of St Laurence (2003-2013Summary: The authors explore the concept of the ‘social investment state’ examining major writings in which it has been developed. They consider policy developments in the United Kingdom and the European Union which exemplify the model, and reflect on elements of it which are emerging (though less explicitly at the federal level) in Australia. They argue that strengths of the social investment model include its reuniting of economic and social policy, its commitment to equality of opportunity and its fostering of economic participation (with the caution that participation is often too narrowly defined).Availability: Items available for loan: Brotherhood of St Laurence (1).

Building the capacity to innovate : the role of human capital /

by Smith, Andrew | National Centre for Vocational Education Research | Courvisanos, Jerry | Tuck, Jacqueline.

Publisher: Adelaide, S.A. National Centre for Vocational Education Research 2012Description: PDF.Other title: National Vocational Education and Training Research and.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: February 2012 Bibliography p. 38Summary: In this paper, the authors examine the links between human resource management, including learning and development practices, and building innovation capacity. The survey component of the research found only limited evidence for the links between human resource management and innovation capacity, although some management practices such as the bundling of high performance work practices were found to have some association with innovation capacity. Subsequent case studies found a lack of understanding by large enterprises of the role of human resource management in fostering innovation capacity. This was seen to have implications for the tertiary education system in stimulating demand for innovation courses.Availability: (1)

Economic perspectives on social exclusion. /

by McDonald, Ian.

Publisher: Melbourne, Vic. University of Melbourne. Social Justice Initiative 2009Description: 16 p.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: Discussion Paper No. 1 June 2009Summary: In this paper some economic perspectives on social exclusion are presented. The perspectives come from traditional areas of economics, especially human capital theory, and from the new area of behaviourial economics, especially present bias and the status externality. They show that happiness, human capital and individual choice can yield insights for the study of social exclusion. The economic perspectives discussed in this paper can help respond to the suggestion by Mary Daly and Hilary Silver to move beyond the concept of social exclusion to a 'fullyarticulated theory' of social exclusion. Furthermore they support the judgement of Ruth Levitas that in the public debate there is inadequate pressure for redistribution, excessive moral blame placed on the socially excluded, and an excessive concern for labour force participation at the expense of non-market activity, as expressed in her development and discussion of the REDMUD-SID framework of discourses.Availability: (1)
