Understanding and preventing corruption by Adam Graycar( )

10 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 260 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This readily accessible guide addresses key issues in the international problem of public and private sector corruption. Despite the growth in interest of corruption in government and politics, few studies have focused on the practical questions of how to combat corruption. Graycar and Prenzler address these deficits by connecting analyses about the nature and causes of corruption with strategies for effective corruption reduction. Using a variety of international case studies, this text explores the range of harms caused by corruption and the opportunity factors that allow corruption to occur in diverse forms and locations. Presenting an innovative evidence-based framework, Graycar and Prenzler examine the lessons which can be learnt, exploring corruption prevention strategies in the areas of criminal justice, government procurement, public health and town planning

How Australians live : social policy in theory and practice by Adam Graycar( Book )

13 editions published between 1989 and 1993 in English and held by 241 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In the past two decades developments in social policy have moved rapidly, both in Australia and throughout the Western world. Changing economic conditions have been accompanied by spectacular advances and retreats in policy and provision. Every advance and every retreat, every innovation and every change has produced winners and losers. The welfare state, despite its changing fortunes, has had a profound effect on its citizens. This book documents the theories that have set the welfare state on course, the processes by which the theories are put into effect, and their outcomes. In short, it examines the Australian welfare state in theory and practice, and in so doing describes how Australians live. This second edition of How Australians Live documents some of the changes in Australian social policy in recent years. It provides new data and time series data on various aspects of Australian society. It is a thoroughgoing revision

"This book is an edited collection of new, original research and policy analysis dealing with the most important concepts and empirical research in corruption and its prevention. Its focus is international and transnaƯ tional. It provides a critical analysis of the key areas of current research interest in corruption and its control and also outlines a potential research agenda for the future. It has a research rather than a practitioner focus, and seeks to provide a single source-book of current research and discussion on topical and critical aspects of foreign corrupt practices globally". -- PAGE 3

Preventing crime against older Australians by Marianne Pinkerton James( Book )

2 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 80 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Since the 1970s, there has been an increase in concern about older people as victims of crime. This report shows that older people are at risk from a number of sources, including: family members and friends; strangers; commercial organisations; or carers. When understanding and responding to crime and older people there are, therefore, three issues which need to be discussed. These are: crime and abuse; fear of crime; and risk assessment and strategic partnership. This report summarises the important issues under debate, suggests ways of moving these debates forward, and reports on activities and programs around Australia which attempt to address the perceived problem of crime and older people
Money laundering in the 21st century : risks and countermeasures : seminar held on 7 February 1996, Canberra, Australia( Book )

6 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 73 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Money laundering is a silent crime. It crosses international boundaries leaving in its wake no obvious victims, no lethal weapons and usually no witnesses. Modern technology has led to new avenues to disguise the proceeds of crime. The advent of electronic money has meant that tracing the transfer of possibly illicit funds is an extremely difficult, if not impossible task. How can law enforcement agencies around the world combat this complex crime? As these papers show, international cooperation and the rapid identification of countermeasures to control the incidence of money laundering are the keys to prevention. This collection of papers was given at a February 1996 seminar in Canberra
A safe and secure environment for older Australians by Marianne Pinkerton James( Book )

3 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 68 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This report outlines the relationship between older Australians, crime, crime prevention and fear of crime. It discusses the risks for older Australians of becoming victim to various types of crime, and finds that older people in Australia are far less likely to be victims of crime than people in other age groups. The report recommends targeting strategies both to prevent victimisation and to counter older people's fears about becoming a victim of crime, as such fearfulness can potentially limit quality of life and lead to social isolation. These strategies are best implemented at a local government level, as part of a community safety strategy, and in partnership with other key agencies and stakeholders
