Citizens without rights : Aborigines and Australian citizenship by John Chesterman( Book )

21 editions published between 1997 and 1998 in English and held by 619 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

For most of Australia's history, Aborigines and Torres Strait Islanders have been treated as citizens without rights. This book analyses the ways in which they have been excluded from meaningful citizenship by carefully examining government administrative practices
Federalism in Asia( )

11 editions published between 2007 and 2009 in English and held by 480 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Federalism in Asia explores the range of theoretical perspectives that shape debates over federalism in general, and over territorial, multinational, hybrid, and asymmetric federalism in particular relation to Asia. The contributors share their understanding of how federal or quasi-federal institutions manage ethnic conflicts and accommodate differences, how democratization facilitates the development of federalism and how federalism facilitates or inhibits democratization in Asia. Their conclusion is that hybrid federalism or quasi-federalism is more prevalent in some Asian countries than others; and the need and potential for greater federalism in more Asian countries makes this sortie into this area worthwhile."--Jacket
A federal republic : Australia's constitutional system of government by Brian Galligan( Book )

15 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 399 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This provocative book argues that Australia is already a federal republic rather than a constitutional monarchy. It argues that by adopting a federal constitution in 1901 Australians ensured their status as a sovereign people. While the book does not deny the parliamentary and monarchic elements of the Australian system, it calls for a positive reassessment of the Constitution. Brian Galligan forcefully argues that the Australian Constitution has primacy over the other political institutions of the nation. The book considers fundamental issues that arise in discussion of the Constitution and federalism, including the role of the Senate, the possibility of a bill of rights, the way the High Court fits into our current system and the nature of governmental relations

Australians and globalisation : the experience of two centuries by Brian Galligan( Book )

4 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 250 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Constitutional conventions in Westminster systems : controversies, changes and challenges( )

8 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 247 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Conventions are fundamental to the constitutional systems of parliamentary democracies. Unlike the United States which adopted a republican form of government, with a full separation of powers, codified constitutional structures and limitations for executive and legislative institutions and actors, Britain and subsequently Canada, Australia and New Zealand have relied on conventions to perform similar functions. The rise of new political actors has disrupted the stability of the two-party system, and in seeking power the new players are challenging existing practices. Conventions that govern constitutional arrangements in Britain and New Zealand, and the executive in Canada and Australia, are changing to accommodate these and other challenges of modern governance. In Westminster democracies, constitutional conventions provide the rules for forming government; they precede law and make law-making possible. This prior and more fundamental realm of government formation and law making is shaped and structured by conventions"--
Beyond the protective state : the political economy of Australia's manufacturing industry policy by Ann Capling( Book )

7 editions published between 1992 and 1993 in English and held by 238 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Since the 1980s, Australia has undergone a quiet revolution in its national policy for manufacturing industry. Protectionism, the basis of policy for over a century and a strong tenet of Australian political culture, has been abolished and corrective policies phased in. These special industry plans, devised by the Labor Industry Minister Senator John Button, aim to facilitate structural adjustment and force competition, yet leave many Australian industries exposed to volatile world markets. This book is a historical and theoretical account of this transition from a protective to a corrective state. It gives a comprehensive analysis of the corrective policies of the Hawke government and presents case studies of three troubled manufacturing sectors: steel, motor vehicles, and textiles, clothing and footwear. The changing role of the state is discussed: long seen as a vast public utility providing services and infrastructure, the Australian state has been cut back and streamlined by policies of privatisation and corporatisation. Yet the authors argue that there is still a strong role for the state in encouraging and promoting industry, with a level of involvement comparable to the forging of the protective state in the early years of federation. This book makes a significant and timely contribution to writing on the Australian state and economic policy. It will prepare the way for debate on how Australia might create a new political economy beyond the protective state

Australian citizenship by Brian Galligan( Book )

Australians have much to celebrate in the hundred years of their citizenship, but also a good deal to be ashamed of.

Becoming Australian by Brian Galligan( Book )

8 editions published between 2014 and 2015 in English and held by 146 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The year 2013 is the 40th anniversary of the end of the 'White Australia policy'. In these four decades Australia's immigration policy has shifted from a primary concern with cultural homogeneity or Britishness to a focus on demand-based skills through an increasingly fine-tuned system of points tests, occupation lists and employer-sponsored visas. Despite disproportionate politicisation of asylum seekers in recent public discourse, the intake of refugees and humanitarian entrants has remained relatively small. While Australia's contemporary migrant and refugee intake is truly multicultural, and governments continue to adhere to an official multicultural policy, integration into the Australian community and culture has been the dominant process, especially for second and third generation Australians. Australian identity and citizenship have changed in the last forty years, making Australia and its people more pluralistic and richly diverse. Becoming Australian focuses on the ways in which migrants and refugees meet the challenges of 'becoming Australian' and the transformative process for Australia and its people as they incorporate the continuing influx of multicultural peoples
