Although the precise content of this course varies from year to year, students will find that this course examines an emerging issue in public policy from a multi-disciplinary perspective. Course themes over recent years have included Indigenous Policies, Environmental Policies and Inter-governmental Policies. Topics vary with the interests of changing lecturers. The aim is to bring students face to face with policy experts who have substantial practical experience with policy advising and policy implementation.
Other InformationTopic: Urbanisation and Human Settlement
Offered Semester 1 2015
The world is experiencing urbanisation at an unprecedented scale. In many countries, a large number of people move from the farming sector to industries, from their rural homes to towns and cities either in their home country or abroad.
On the one hand, we see lots of negative outcomes: the destinations of migration struggle to cope with the pressure of massive increase in the population from poorer backgrounds, and the home of migrants suffer from loss of talents and often trapped in poverty and broken society. On the other hand, we also see the enormous opportunities urbanisation can bring to migrants, businesses and the country as a whole.
Cities in the world have adopted very different approaches or strategies to provide services and governance to cope with these pressures. As they try to do so, many questions need to be addressed:
o What would be decent living conditions for migrant population?
o What kinds of needs and rights should migrants enjoy?
o Who should take on the responsibility to improve living conditions for migrant population?
o How to prioritise or allocate resources to deal with complicated challenges in relation to human settlement?
o How to deal with the challenges of urbanisation when facing environmental constraints and the trends of aging society?
