Social Policy in Australia 2E guides students in understanding the meaning and operation of social policy in Australia. Taking a critical approach, and placing their analysis of social policy in an international context, the authors provide a framework for understanding the roles and relationships of the key players and institutions that influence the decision-making process. This authoritative, up-to-date text is written in light of the latest change in government and tackles the issues most relevant in recent times, including climate change and social justice.
