The unit develops abilities in policy analysis by comparing Australia's social policy environment, processes and performance with those of selected countries. A multi-disciplinary and problem-centred approach is adopted that takes into account sociology, economics, political science and demography. Problem areas examined include the trade-offs between poverty, equality, efficiency and liberty; the growing impact of long-term unemployment; the design and operation of social welfare systems; and the dilemmas of health policy.
1 developed a working knowledge of key concepts and ideas in the study of social policy, including the role of ideology, values and theory.
2 demonstrated an understanding of social policy processes in Australia.
3 reflected critically on a range of contemporary social policy issues.
4 demonstrated the capacity to research, present and critically reflect on social policy issues.
5 engaged in discussions on the complexities of researching and resolving social policy issues.
