Keeping governments on track to end child poverty : the role of advocacy and activism / delivered by Kate Green

by Green, Kate | Brotherhood of St Laurence.

Publisher: Fitzroy, Vic. Brotherhood of St Laurence 2005Description: 12 p. PDF.Other title: Sambell Oration 2005.Online Access: DOWNLOAD PDF Notes: Delivered at the Australian Child Poverty Conference, 7 December 2005.Summary: I am delighted and honoured to be invited to give the Sambell Oration to the conference this morning, and to have the opportunity to meet Australian colleagues who are engaged in the same effort as Child Poverty Action Group to bring an end to child poverty in two of the world’s wealthiest countries. This is my first visit to Australia, and I’m particularly pleased that it should be to Melbourne, which in the few days I have spent here I have found beautiful, welcoming, it is a pleasure to be here. And I am also especially pleased to be asked to give this oration now, not just because I seem to have arrived at a time of political controversy, with your Treasurer Mr Costello expounding some startling new ideas about welfare reform pretty well as I stepped off my plane, but also because this year, 2005, marks CPAG’s 40th birthday (I know—we don’t look a day over 25!), and you know how these big birthdays make you stop and take stock. So the end of our big 40th year seems an especially fitting moment to reflect on the effectiveness of our anti-poverty work and to suggest some pointers for the future, and to share and compare with you in your rather different political environment as I look back over 40 years of activism back home.

Remaking community? : New Labour and the governance of poor neighbourhoods /

by Wallace, Andrew.

Publisher: Farnham ; Burlington, VT Ashgate Publishing Co 2010Description: 159 p.Notes: Includes bibliographical references and index. Contents: Introduction -- New Labour, new welfare citizens -- Local governance and new deal for communities -- Contesting community -- Questioning agency -- Understanding exclusion -- Ensnared citizens -- Concluding thoughtsSummary: Remaking Community addresses the interlinking uses of community in government rhetoric and practice. It explores why this concept was so central to the British New Labour governing project and what it meant for individuals enveloped in the 'regeneration' of their citizenship and locality. It seeks to understand how community is conceptualised, applied, constructed, misunderstood, exploited, experienced, contested, mobilised and activated by both policy actors and neighbourhood residents and situates this discussion within an examination of the political, emotional and cultural impact of the regeneration experience. Offering a timely analysis of New Labour, regeneration and the politics of community, this book makes an original and important contribution to debates around new spaces of governance, citizen participation and the tackling social exclusion in poor neighbourhoods.Availability: Items available for loan: Brotherhood of St Laurence (1).

The inclusive society? : social exclusion and new labour /

by Levitas, Ruth.

Edition: 2nd ed.Publisher: Basingstoke, U.K. Palgrave Macmillan 2005Description: xv, 277 p.Notes: Originally published: Basingstoke: Macmillan, 1998. Includes bibliographical references and index.Summary: The idea of social exclusion is part of the new political language. But what exactly does social inclusion mean? This revised and updated edition identifies three competing meanings of the term in contemporary British politics, emphasizing poverty, employment and morality. Ruth Levitas argues that there has been a shift away from understanding social exclusion as primarily a problem of poverty, towards questions of social integration through paid work and moral regulation.Availability: Items available for loan: Brotherhood of St Laurence (2).

Why the Third Way failed : economics, morality and the orgins of the 'Big Society' /

by Jordan, Bill.

Publisher: Bristol, U.K. Policy Press 2010Description: iv, 228 p.Notes: Includes bibliographical references and indexSummary: In the wake of the economic crash, public policy is in search of a new moral compass. This book explains why the Third Way's combination of market-friendly and abstract, value-led principles has failed, and shows what is needed for an adequate replacement as a political and moral project. It criticises the economic analysis on which the Third Way approach to policy was founded and suggests an alternative to its legalistic and managerial basis for the regulation of social relations.Availability: Items available for loan: Brotherhood of St Laurence (1).
