Cutting it : the 'Big Society' and the new austerity /

by Coote, Anna | New Economics Foundation.

Publisher: London, U.K. New Economics Foundation 2010Description: PDF.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: November 2010 Bibliography : p. 26-28Summary: Far from being a temporary buzz-phrase, as some suspected, the 'Big Society' seems to have taken off and taken hold in a big way. Across British national and local government, across considerable chunks of the business world and great swathes of the third sector, it is a hot topic of discussion and the driver of a massive re-branding exercise, as the phrase is swiftly bolted to countless projects, events and documents. What does it mean? What difference could it make to our lives? What are the opportunities and threats? This report takes account of emerging plans for government action as well as the public spending review. It also reflects what we have learned from a wide range of charities, community groups and government officials at meetings they convened to discuss what the 'Big Society' could mean to them.Availability: (1)

Developing a national Indigenous policy framework that recognises needs, rights and legacies and delivers results . /

by Altman, Jon | Australian National University. Centre for Aboriginal conomic Policy Research.

Publisher: Canberra, A.C.T Centre for Aboriginal Economic Policy Research 2009Description: PDF.Summary: 'Developing a national Indigenous policy framework that recognises needs, rights and legacies and delivers results', based on a presentation to the Australian Council of Social Service (ACOSS) National Conference, ‘Building a Fair Australia in Tough Economic Times’, Australian Technology Park, Sydney, on 2 April 2009. This paper examines current Indigenous policy, including Closing the Gap, a monolithic approach that privileges statistical equality over all else and undervalues difference and diversity. It argues for a very different policy framework that looks to openly combine three interlinked elements: needs-based citizenship rights, special Indigenous rights, and compensatory ‘social justice’ rights.Availability: Items available for loan: Brotherhood of St Laurence (1).

by Karlsen, Elibritt | Australia. Department of Parliamentary Services. arliamentary Library.

Publisher: Canberra, A.C.T. Australia. Department of Parliamentary Services. Parliamentary Library 2010Description: PDF.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: 18 October 2010 Includes bibliographical references.Summary: On 24 November 2007, the Australian Labor Party (ALP) won the federal election, defeating the Coalition Government which had been in power for nearly twelve years. Kevin Rudd was sworn in as Australia's 26th Prime Minister on 3 December 2007. The ALP National Platform, which was formally adopted in April 2007, represented the party's long term aspirations for Australia. In relation to immigration, the ALP ambitiously resolved to implement significant changes for asylum seekers and refugees if elected. Most notably, to end the so called Pacific Solution ; to give permanent, not temporary, protection to all refugees; to limit the detention of asylum seekers for the purposes of conducting initial health, identity and security checks; to subject the length and conditions of detention to review; to vest management of detention centres with the public sector; to retain the excision of Christmas Island, Cocos Islands and Ashmore Reef; and to create a new Refugee Determination Tribunal. In the area of refugee policy the key themes of the platform were humanity, fairness, integrity and public confidence.Availability: (1)

A recent study on child poverty concludes that an increasing body of evidence suggests that there can be major differences in well-being between children living in different geographical areas (Harding et al. 2006). Australia is still a country where life chances are unequal. This damages not only those children born into disadvantage, but society as a whole. Providing for the well-being of children can be argued as important on the grounds of social justice and equality. But economist James Heckman (2004) has also demonstrated the substantial cost savings gained by investment in early childhood services for disadvantaged children—and the cost of achieving the desired outcomes increase with the age of the child. Using a social investment argument, there is also the case for investing in people for economic and social productivity reasons (Perkins, Nelms & Smyth 2005).Availability: Items available for loan: Brotherhood of St Laurence (1).
