Building equality and opportunity through social guarantees : new approaches to public policy and the realization of rights by Estanislao Gacitúa-Marió( Book )

10 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 138 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book examines the validity of a social guarantees approach as a framework for evaluating, monitoring, and improving the design of social policy. Social guarantees are defined as sets of policy mechanisms that determine citizens' entitlements related to basic services and ensure their fulfillment on the part of the state. The social guarantee concept gives operational expression to fundamental human rights principles by providing mechanisms for awareness, participation, equity, and redress in the delivery of social policy. In addition, the social guarantees approach responds to an emerging global need for a comprehensive social policy model - a new social contract between the state and its citizens - that can face up to the challenges of inclusive and sustainable globalization. The book includes analytical case studies from Bolivia, Chile, Colombia, Ecuador, Peru, Uruguay, South Africa, and the Caribbean region

The unchained university by Andrew Norton( Book )

3 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 49 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Australia's universities are chained down by outdated, inconsistent and often crippling legislation. This monograph is a comprehensive book-length argument for a market-based higher education system in Australia. The universities' problems are largely the creation of policy, which means it is not difficult to find reforms that could produce significant improvements in relatively short periods of time. Two of the four university funding models put forward in Education Minister Dr Brendan Nelson's higher education finance discussion paper propose a market system, with student places allocated according to demand, and prices set by universities. The reasons for making this change, and the likely consequences, are dealt with only sketchily in government documents. This book expands on the benefits of a market based system to higher education and argues that a demand-driven system in which prices were set by universities would mean fewer students missing out on their preferred courses, improved quality of undergraduate education, and the end of universities' chronic financial problems. There is, however, a powerful coalition of interest groups opposing change- from student unionists to Vice Chancellors-most of whom also hold deep ideological positions on higher education. They fear that market reforms would have a negative effect on access and equity, on 'traditional' disciplines such as the Arts and Sciences, and rural and regional universities. Unless their objections are dealt with, getting political acceptance for reform will be difficult. This book addresses anti-market arguments and outlines the failure of the current central planning model and the benefits of an alternative funding model in which universities decide how many students they will take and what fees they will charge. The government's role will be offering discipline-specific subsidies and income-contingent loans to pay fees. The various objections to higher education markets are explained, and shown to be wrong or over-stated

The Dawkins revolution : 25 years on( Book )

2 editions published between 2013 and 2014 in English and held by 41 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

John Dawkins was Australia's most influential higher education minister. He turned colleges into universities, free education into HECS, elite education into mass education, a local focus into an international outlook, vice-chancellors into CEOs, and most academics into both teachers and researchers. The publication of this volume marks the twenty - fifth anniversary of the revolution that John Dawkins started, creating what became known as the Unified National System of higher education. While John Dawkins' reforms were and often remain controversial, they have had a lasting impact on the shape of university education in Australia. This edited collection of research papers, histories and personal accounts from key players analyses the antecedents, details and legacy of this remarkable period in higher education policy in Australia
