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).

The Australian Collaboration 2010; Brotherhood of St Laurence 2010Description: 36 p.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: Bibliography : p. 34-36 Part of a series of essays devoted to political, societal and environmental issues facing Australia Paul Smyth, General Manager Research and Policy Centre Brotherhood of St Laurence (2003-2013)Summary: In In or Out: Building an Inclusive Nation? Paul Smyth argues that it is high time that we embarked on a period of nation building the 'Australian way'. Our welfare system, he says, is out of date and we sorely need a new social policy architecture to shape the nation. Two key themes provide the bases of a radical policy renewal: the social inclusion agenda and the social investment state. The central challenge is to take social inclusion from being a tag attached to an ad hoc assortment of policies and programs directed at a few population groups and places unfortunate enough to be labeled 'socially excluded' to becoming the basis of a new Compact for a Fair Go.Availability: Items available for loan: Brotherhood of St Laurence (2), BSL Archives (1).

Social inclusion, employment and social enterprise /

by Barraket, Jo | Brotherhood of St Laurence.

Publisher: Fitzroy, Vic. Brotherhood of St Laurence 2008Description: PDF.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: 13 June 2008 The social inclusion and place based disadvantage workshop was held on the 13th of June 2008 at the Metropole Conference Centre in Fitzroy, Victoria, under the auspices of the Brotherhood of St Laurence's Research & Policy Centre and the Victorian Department of Planning & Community Development.Summary: Social and community enterprise is no panacea to social inclusion. Where appropriately supported, however, this type of civil society activity can form part of a broader suite of community and third-sector led initiatives that empower communities and stimulate social innovation in response to local needs. As such social enterprise has a role to play alongside continued efforts to redress structural and systemic inequality at the macro level. Victoria has led the way in investing in and promoting the potential benefits of community and social enterprise in supporting social inclusion. If these kinds of enterprises are to become more than marginal activities generating a few 'good news stories', however, further work is required by policy makers, social and community enterprise leaders, and parts of the corporate sector.Availability: (1)
