About the Authors
  • Australian Social Policy and the Human Services introduces readers to the complex field of social policy development, implementation and evaluation. Drawing on the evolution of policymaking practices and debates surrounding the delivery of human services, the text explores the links between policy and practice in contemporary Australian society. Fully revised and updated, this second edition features a new chapter on citizenship and globalisation, as well as enhanced discussions of immigration policy and disability policy. A new instructor companion website features a curated suite of multimedia resources and extension questions designed to encourage readers to independently develop their knowledge. Each chapter is framed by learning objectives, reflection points, end-of-chapter exercises, further reading lists and links to online content, while key terms and case studies illustrate significant concepts. Written in an engaging and accessible style, Australian Social Policy and the Human Services is an indispensable resource for students and practitioners alike.

    • Equips readers with a critical understanding of the role of human service workers across a range of key policy areas
    • Addresses contemporary debates in social policy and emerging issues in citizenship and globalisation
    • A comprehensive suite of pedagogical resources encourages critical thinking and engagement
