Today, however, they appear disoriented and rudderless, crucially lacking the ideological, intellectual, and organizational vitality which underpinned their strength in the post-war political landscape. Electorally marginalized, seemingly ideologically exhausted, and often out-of-step with the contemporary zeitgeist, European social democracy is currently in profound need of revision and renewal - potentially its very existence as a political force is under threat. This book marks a serious attempt to forge the intellectual backbone of a renewed social democracy fit for the 21st century. Bringing together leading academics, political thinkers, and policy experts, After the Third Way offers a new and original perspective on ideological and policy innovation, and will be invaluable reading for anyone interested in the future of social democracy.Availability: Items available for loan: Brotherhood of St Laurence (1).

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).

Public funding and the values of third sector organisations : output legitimacy versus normative legitimacy. /

by Nevile, Ann.

Publisher: Canberra, A.C.T. Australian National University 2009Description: 23 p.Notes: URL: 'http://www.crawford.anu.edu.au/degrees/pogo/discussion_papers/PDP08-03.pdf' Checked: 2/06/2009 11:30:37 AM Status: Live Details: HTTP status 200 - Usual success responseSummary: "As the involvement of third sector organisations in the delivery of publicly funded services has increased, so too have debates over the effect of such collaboration on the distinctive value base of third sector organisations on which normative claims of legitimacy rest. This qualitative study based on in-depth interviews with staff from a diverse range of third sector organisations in the north of England and London, asks whether the normative legitimacy of third sector organisations is being compromised by the requirements placed on third sector organisations by external funding agencies. The study finds that third sector agencies are able to protect their normative legitimacy through a range of strategies, the most important of which is a mixed resource base; a strategy that also enables third sector organisations to engage in evolutionary innovation." -- AuthorAvailability: Items available for loan: Brotherhood of St Laurence (1).

Putting a positive gloss on welfare state de-structuring? : recent British experience /

by Jones Finer, Catherine | Brotherhood of St Laurence.

Publisher: Fitzroy, Vic. Brotherhood of St Laurence and Centre for Public Policy, University of Melbourne 2004Description: 14 p.Other title: Social policy working paper ; no. 2.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: Includes bibliographical references (p. 13-14) September 2004 This paper is developed from a presentation at a symposium `From welfare state to social investment state?' hosted by the Brotherhood of St Laurence, University of Melbourne Centre for Public Policy and Victorian Council of Social Services in Melbourne on 5 July 2004.Summary: Catherine Finer traces social policy developments in Britain since the post World War 2 emergence of the welfare state, paying particular attention to the way such developments have been presented by politicians, academics and the media. She argues that in spite of the rhetoric of the ‘Thatcher revolution’ and the ‘Third Way’ and social investment, the reality has involved far less transformation of policy and of the socio-political landscape than proponents of the successive policies claimed.Availability: Items available for loan: Brotherhood of St Laurence (1).
