Includes bibliographical references.Summary: This is the third report assessing progress under COAG's National Affordable Housing Agreement. In this report, the council focuses on the outcomes in the Agreement that relate to home purchase affordability, rental affordability, and housing market efficiency and responsiveness. The council found that nationally, based on the indicators and years that can be reported on, there is no indication that housing affordability has improved. Rental affordability in particular - as measured by the proportion of low income households spending more than 30 per cent of their income on rent - has worsened in capital cities and for those on the lowest incomes.Availability: (1)

Flexicurity and beyond : finding a new agenda for the European Social Model /

by Jorgensen, Henning (ed.) | Madsen, Per Kongshoj (ed.).

Publisher: Copenhagen DJOF Publishing 2007Description: 610 p. : ill.Notes: INTO AND OUT OF WORKSummary: 'Flexicurity' - a combination of 'flexibility' and 'security' - has become a hot topic among European politicians. At the European summit on March 2006, the European Council decided to develop a set of common principles of flexicurity. Since then a stream of reports and documents on the subject has come from Brussels. The latest example is a communication from the Commission with the promising title "Towards Common Principles of Flexicurity: More and Better Jobs Through Flexibility and Security". Based hereon, the Council will in December take the final decision on the common principles. Denmark is often taken as a prime example of flexicurity, because of the special combination of low employment protection, high unemployment benefits and active labour market policy. This 'golden triangle' has won international fame and is marketed - also by the European Commission and the OECD - as a prototype of how the appropriate balance between flexibility and security can lead to high employment and low unemployment. It was therefore no coincidence that Denmark was the location for a conference attracting leading European researchers of flexicurity. The event took place in October 2006 and was hosted by the Centre for Labour Market Research (CARMA) at the University of Aalborg. For the first time, twenty up-to-date analysis of flexicurity both as existing national and European institutions and as a political strategy are collected in this edited volume. The contributions are divided into the following topics: Flexicurity as a European strategy to boost the Lisbon agenda; Empirical studies of flexicurity in the EU Member States: How far are they from realizing the ideal of flexicurity? And neglected aspects of flexicurity, like wage formation and flexicurity arrangements at firm level.Availability: Items available for loan: Brotherhood of St Laurence (1).

Healthcare 2010-11 : comparing performance across Australia : report to the Council of Australian Governments /

by McClintock, Paul | COAG Reform Council.

Publisher: Sydney, N.S.W. COAG Reform Council 2012Description: xl, 139 p. : ill.Other title: Health care 2010-11.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: 30 April 2012 PDF is of full report only Chairman: Paul McClintock. Includes bibliographical references.Summary: This is the third Reform Council's report assessing progress under COAG?s National Healthcare Agreement. One of the key findings from the report was that while there has been progress in improving hospital care, it?s not consistent across Australia. For example, elective surgery waiting times have improved in a number of jurisdictions, but some of the states with larger populations are lagging. The report also finds that health outcomes are still not equal for all Australians. For example, more people delayed seeing a GP due to cost, and a quarter of people report financial barriers to seeing a dentist.Availability: (1)
