Publicus consilium : Deakin public policy review by Deakin University( Book )

1 edition published in 2011 in Undetermined and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

In this second edition of Publicus Consilium the Editorial Board sought to include essays selected from submissions by students enrolled in the second year unit AIP 230: Public Policy in Australia. These pieces covered a wide array of issues currently debated in the public domain such as that of asylum seekers and aged care reforms, as well as addressing areas of current undergraduate study by students, such as public health, education and welfare -- areas that students may wish to pursue in their future careers. Twenty essays were chosen, the length of which was typically 2000 words allowing for an examination of the substantive debate and expression of a conclusive opinion. It was the responsibility of the Editorial Board to analyse each of the essays submitted for publication. The set of criteria applied by the Board in assessing the submitted essays were a strong argument as well as a clearly written, researched and referenced piece of work. Additionally, essays were required not just to provide an analysis on the chosen topic, but to take a position based on the evidence presented in the essay. In applying these criteria, the Editorial Board has finalised its selection. Overall, these essays are the same as submitted, however minor changes have been made to some titles, due to similarity amongst submissions on the same topics. Others have required editing and that minor corrections be made by the board, in an endeavour to publish a work reflective of the standard set by Deakin University
