John Cain Lunch Series: Mark Considine – The Careless State

A powerful statement of how to fix Australia’s failing social services.

The lives of all Australians are profoundly affected by the quality of social services available, but a long list of royal commissions and public inquiries have revealed them to be failing. In The Careless State Mark Considine shows that the preferred model of reform has failed to adapt and improve.

Mark Considine is Redmond Barry Distinguished Professor of Political Science at the University of Melbourne and he spoke at Per Capita’s monthly John Cain Lunch about his book, The Careless State.
