In which the nerds dig deep into one of the largest areas of the budget and an under-considered topic in the 2016 federal election: social policy.  What's been going on, what are the tenancies of policy makers, and what are the future directions of this key area of the policy process.  We discuss employment, welfare services, inequality, participation, and the future of the welfare state in a globalised context.

Hosts:

  • Dr Amanda Elliot, Department of Sociology, University of Sydney
  • Dr Stewart Jackson, Department of Government, University of Sydney

Guests:

  • Associate Professor Susan Goodwin, Faculty of Education and Social Work, University of Sydney
  • Associate Professor Gaby Ramia, Department of Government, University of Sydney

With additional post show chatter / cynicism!
