Developmental Local Governance: A Critical Discourse in 'Alternative Development' Edited by E D. Schoburgh, J Martin, Sonia Gatchair

 

This collection cirtically evaluates the relationship between local government and national economic development, It focuses on how the relationship between local government and development is structured, and the specific institutional arrangements at national and subnational levels that might facilitate local governments' asssumption of the role of development agent. In light of contradictory outcomes of development and implied experiementation with new modalities, post-development discourse provides a useful explanatory framework for the book. 

Climate Change in Regional Australia: Social Learning and Adaptation.

Edited by J Martin, M Rogers and C Winter

 

In this book are case studies of community level approaches to climate change mitigation and adaptation covering communities and governance, farming communities, economics and water. The cases are based on research being undertaken across Australian communities and show how a social learning approach can bring about fundamental change with lasting impacts at the local level. The salience of the local approach empowers communities, recognising that they are unique and that they can take action to respond. It is essential for their survival that they do so. If ever there is a time for governments to decentralise action, it is now.

LOCAL GOVERNMENT IN A GLOBAL WORLD: AUSTRALIA AND CANADA IN COMPARATIVE PERSPECTIVE

Edited by Emmanuel Brunet-Jailly and John F. Martin

 

Local government plays a critical role in the lives of all citizens, from remote towns to capital cities. As the political legitimacy and importance of municipalities grow, however, it becomes increasingly difficult to strike a balance between local and higher levels of government. The contributors to Local Government in a Global World provide insights into key themes impacting local governance in two federations with much in common historically, culturally, and politically: Australia and Canada.

 

These essays examine changes in the Australian and Canadian systems through four thematic lenses: citizen participation in government systems, the restructuring and reform of local governments, the use of performance measures and management systems in the administration of local governments, and the relations of local governments within higher levels of governments. Unique in its thematic selection and in its compare-and-contrast structure, Local Government in a Global World provides a valuable reference for those seeking to understand how effective local government is structured and managed.

THE SUSTAINABILITY OF AUSTRALIA’S COUNTRY TOWNS: RENEWAL, RENAISSANCE, RESILIENCE,

Edited by John Martin, Trevor Budge

 

This recently published book is based on the third Australian Country Towns conference held in Bendigo late in 2010 and is a timely reminder of the diversity of Australia's country towns and the unique challenges each faces.Over seventeen chapters, the book considers the sustainability of these places from a number of perspectives: leadership; decentralisation policy; mobility; lifestyle choices; ageing; housing; agriculture and forestry; retail; youth; health; and finally art and culture.This eclectic mix of papers reveals the multidimensional nature of sustainability as applied to Australia's country towns. The book emphasises the important role regional associations and local government play in ensuring the sustainability of our country towns.

Living Longer on the Land: Case studies of the Sustainable Farm Families Program in the Sugar and Cotton Industries

Brumby, S., J. Martin and S. Willder (2008) , Canberra, Rural Industries Research and Development Corporation

 

The importance of this report is that it provides basic statistical information on the transfer and repeatability of the previously successful Sustainable Farm Families project (WDH-3A). It also provides qualitative and quantitative information on the health, well-being and safety of a group of cotton and sugar producers. This report will provide a useful basis for agricultural industries contemplating investment or formulating policy in the health, well-being and safety of their human resource – an important issue for agriculture’s future. Farm families from the cotton and sugar industries have embraced this project and are now incorporating health, well-being and safety as important business indicators that affect their ‘triple bottom line’.

 

 

Participation and Governance in Regional Development: Global Trends in an Australian Context

Robyn Eversole, John Martin

 

Providing a clearly written, cross-disciplinary overview of changing understandings of regional development in Australia, this volume focuses particularly on how the concept of participation is playing an increasingly important role in all aspects of regional development theory, policy and practice. It explores current trends toward increased citizen participation in development decision making and the establishment of governance structures to facilitate participation. The book brings the Australian experience into the larger debate, while seating Australian regional development experiences within their broader international context.

Reorienting a Nation: Consultants and Australian Public Policy

John F. Martin

 

Reorienting a NationConsultants and Australian Public PolicyBy John F. MartinThis text reports on the use of consultants by Hawke Labour Governments in the mid-to-late 1980s to review public policy in the files of social welfare, public housing, immigration, public health and relations with Australia's North East Asian neighbours. The research is based on the hypothesis that, in a context of significant social and economic change, governments are especially likely to engage sympathetic consultants to review public policy. They do so because consultants provide an additional layer of protection form attack on proposed policies by political adversaries for ministers and governments who want to alter policy direction radically and to do so over a longer and more thorough period of data gathering and reflection than is normally possible in the political world.

 

Consultants are also successful in getting their recommendations accepted by government because they are able to successfully manage the process of decision-making surrounding policy reviews. Further, the widely acknowledged expertise of the consultants and their independent status from government legitimates the review process and assists the establishments of a new agenda within a particular policy field. The use of consultants in policy-making in this way allows politicians and bureaucrats to maintain control over the process, while not being seen as the central actors.
