Cheating welfare : public assistance and the criminalization of poverty /

by Gustafson, Kaaryn S.

Publisher: New York, NY New York University Press 2011Description: xi, 227 p.Notes: Contents: 1 Introduction -- 2 Reconstructing Social Ills: From the Perils of Poverty to Welfare Dependency 3 The Criminalization of Poverty 4 A Glimpse at the Interviewees 5 Living within and without the Rules 6 Engaging with Rules and Negotiating Compliance 7 Contextualizing Criminality, Noncompliance, and Resistance 8 Cheating Ourselves Includes bibliography pp.209-220 and indexSummary: Over the last three decades, welfare policies have been informed by popular beliefs that welfare fraud is rampant. As a result, welfare policies have become more punitive and the boundaries between the welfare system and the criminal justice system have blurred so much so that in some locales prosecution caseloads for welfare fraud exceed welfare caseloads. In reality, some recipients manipulate the welfare system for their own ends, others are gravely hurt by punitive policies, and still others fall somewhere in between. In Cheating Welfare, Kaaryn S. Gustafson endeavors to clear up these gray areas by providing insights into the history, social construction, and lived experience of welfare. She shows why cheating is all but inevitable not because poor people are immoral, but because ordinary individuals navigating complex systems of rules are likely to become entangled despite their best efforts. Through an examination of the construction of the crime we know as welfare fraud, which she bases on in-depth interviews with welfare recipients in Northern California, Gustafson challenges readers to question their assumptions about welfare policies, welfare recipients, and crime control in the United States.

Explaining the normative /

by Turner, Stephen.

Publisher: Cambridge ; Malden, MA Polity 2010Description: ix, 228 p.Notes: Includes Bibliography and index.Summary: Normativity is what gives reasons their force, makes words meaningful, and makes rules and laws binding. It is present whenever we use such terms as 'correct,' 'ought,' 'must,' and the language of obligation, responsibility, and logical compulsion. Yet normativists, the philosophers committed to this idea, admit that the idea of a non-causal normative realm and a body of normative objects is spooky. Explaining the Normative is the first systematic, historically grounded critique of normativism. It identifies the standard normativist pattern of argument, and shows how this pattern depends on circularities, assumptions about the unique correctness of preferred descriptions, problematic transcendental arguments, and regress arguments that end in mysteries.Availability: Items available for loan: Brotherhood of St Laurence (1).

National Human Rights Consultation Report /

by National Human Rights Consultation Secretariat.

Publisher: Canberra, A.C.T. Attorney General's Department, Australian Government. 2009Description: PDF.Online Access: Electronic copy Summary: An Australian Human Rights Act that is broadly consistent with the Victorian and ACT legislation could provide a resilient thread in the federal quilt of human rights protection, according to this report, which makes a series of recommenbdations for improving human rights protection. ; The report argues that debate about and consideration of a Human Rights Act should not be allowed to delay action to improve the quality of economic and social rights of those Australians who are most disadvantaged. The Committee finds there has been a tendency for supporters and detractors of the Victorian and ACT models to overstate the models? achievements and their shortcomings. A Human Rights Act on its own will not mend the largest holes in the quilt of Australian rights protection, but that is no reason to oppose such an Act. ; On 10 December 2008 the Federal Government asked the Committee to conduct a nationwide Consultation with the aim of finding out which human rights and responsibilities should be protected and promoted in Australia, whether human rights are sufficiently protected and promoted, and how Australia could better protect and promote human rights. ; The Committee travelled the length and breadth of the country to seek the community?s views. Thousands of people participated in the Consultation, by attending community roundtables, by presenting submissions, by appearing at public hearings, and in other ways. ; This report sets out the primary points the community raised in relation to the protection and promotion of human rights and identifies a number of options for the Federal Government to consider. The advantages and disadvantages of these options are examined, and the Committee makes findings and recommendations in relation to what it learnt during the Consultation.Availability: Items available for loan: Brotherhood of St Laurence (1).
