Australian Social Policy Conference : Social Policy in a Complex World 6-8 July, 2011 Inc. Chinese Social Policy Workshop and HDR Workshop, 6 July /

by University of New South Wales. Social Policy Research Centre.

Publisher: unpub. 2011Notes: HTMLSummary: The Australian Social Policy Conference (ASPC) was held at the University of New South Wales on Wednesday July 6 to Friday 8 July. The Social Policy Research Centre (SPRC) centre at UNSW would like to thank the conference opening speaker, the three keynote speakers, forum presenters and paper givers for their hard work in ensuring that the content of the conference was stimulating and inspiring. The conference program featured the 2nd Chinese Social Policy Workshop and for the first time a Higher Degree Research Workshop. "In designing, implementing and understanding social policy it is becoming increasingly important to recognise complexity in social and economic systems. With globalisation creating instant links between the international and the local, policy is affected by complex interactions of systems and networks at all levels. How can we understand the effects of policy at individual, neighbourhood, national and international levels? What are the most effective means of analysing the intersections and interactions of discrete policy arenas, and between the domains of family, state, community and market?

Can social exclusion provide a new framework for measuring poverty?

by Saunders, Peter | University of New South Wales. Social Policy Research Centre.

Publisher: Sydney, N.S.W. Social Policy Research Centre. University of New South Wales 2003Description: 19 p. PDF.Online Access: DOWNLOAD PDF Notes: October 2003Summary: This paper examines how the concept of social exclusion has evolved in the academic and policy debate in Australia in the last five years or so. It does not attempt to do this comprehensively, but illustrates some of the most important developments, in the process reflecting on some of the issues raised in earlier Australian contribution to the social exclusion literature. The paper is organised around three principal themes: concepts; measurement; and policy. One of the most attractive features of social exclusion is that it broadens the conventional framework that identifies poverty as a lack of resources relative to needs. In this respect, exclusion can be seen as extending other attempts to broader the resource notion of income poverty, specifically those associated with Townsend’s notion of relative deprivation Sen’s more recent ideas of functioning and capability. A range of issues raised in recent debate over the measurement of poverty and in related developments are then reviewed to illustrate the potential advantages of adopting a framework focused around the idea of social exclusion and how different dimensions of exclusion can be identified and quantified. Finally, evidence and experience from the UK and EC are used to show how an exclusion approach can help to promote, not replace, the need for additional work on poverty as conventionally defined and analysed. The paper concludes by arguing that researchers need to think more strategically about how research on exclusion and poverty can exert influence on those setting the policy agenda.Availability: (1)

Children's perspectives on economic adversity : a review of the literature /

by Redmond, Gerry | University of New South Wales. Social Policy Research Centre.

Publisher: Sydney, N.S.W. Social Policy Research Centre. University of New South Wales 2008Description: PDF.Online Access: Electronic copy Summary: "This paper reviews some of the recent qualitative literature on children s perspectives on economic disadvantage. The idea of asking people who experience disadvantage about their own situations is still a relatively new one in the social sciences, and the idea of asking children about their own perceptions of economic and social disadvantage is even more recent. Nine analyses, all published since 1998, and all of them involving in-depth interviews or groupwork with children aged between 5 and 17, are examined in detail. Most of these studies develop frameworks based on the new sociology of childhood , which emphasises the social construction of childhood and children s agency in the context of child-adult relations. The nine studies cover a number of issues related to economic disadvantage, including exclusion from activities and peer groups at school and in the community; perceptions of poor and affluent children; participation in organised activities outside of school hours; methods of coping with financial hardship; support for parents in coping and in seeking and keeping employment, and aspirations for future careers and lives..." -- SPRC websiteAvailability: (1)
