Title: Tackling social exclusion: Models for Building Successful Communities

Summary:

The research will assist government in New South Wales to develop new initiatives to tackle social disadvantage in urban communities, with particular reference to larger public housing estates (25% of the public rented stock in New South Wales). It will feed directly into policy development by providing benchmark indicators to monitor social exclusion, identifying good practice in area regeneration, assessing the impact of current policies on disadvantaged communities and, working closely with the Premiers' Department and the Department of Housing, developing future innovative regeneration policies. More broadly, the research will address issues of concern to public housing authorities across Australia.

Title: Family types and the careers of foster families: Who stays and who leaves?

Summary:

This study examines foster care families to identify the influences that determine why some families continue to act as foster carers, stayers, while others, leavers, cease to do so. Underlying this study is the concept of foster family resistance and resiliency, problem solving and coping abilities. The study has national and international significance and aims to conceptually advance our understanding of the process of recruitment, assessment, selection and retention of foster carers. This outcome should enable agencies to reduce the throughput of foster carers and help to maximise the stability and continuity of care for children in foster care.

Title: Council on the Ageing (Australia) 1951-1999: Organizational and policy responses to a changing economic and sociopolitical environment

Summary:

In period when the impact of population ageing is a significant concern for government in terms of projected outlays on health and social security, and when the future contribution of the aged to society is becoming a major issue of debate, the role of key peak bodies in the politics of an older Australia is increasingly significant. In collaboration with the industry partner, Council on the Ageing (Australia), this project proposes a detailed historical and sociopolitical analysis of the evolution of this key peak advocacy agency and its state councils, since its foundation in 1951 to International Year of Older Persons in 1999, examining its changing relationship to government, community and provider agencies in aged care. As there has been relatively limited analysis of aged interest group politics in Australia this study will make a major contribution to national and international debate on the organization of aged advocacy and provide a major opportunity for postgraduate research.

Title: A project involving members of client families in defining agency strategies for helping families function more effectively

Summary:

The research outlined in this proposal seeks to increase knowledge of how families, experiencing difficult circumstances, view family functioning and what is needed to improve the functioning of their families. Using qualitative methodology to involve significant family members - men, women and children, in contributing their views, this strengths based research will contribute knowledge for developing services which take account of the needs and strengths of different family members. Collaboration by academics and a major child welfare agency in creating strategies and an information package, will be valuable in providing directions for more effective service delivery to families nationally.

Title: Developing a model of substitute care to meet the needs of individual children, through particpatory research which includes children

Summary:

The proposed qualitative research project will develop within an action research context, a holistic model of substitute care to meet needs of individual children. In collaboration with major stakeholders, a framework identifying elements for best practice will be developed from examining existing knowledge, ideologies, assumptions and stakeholder input. Crucial to the project will be the establishment of a process for children's participation in research and thereby decision making, about substitute care. Collaboration between academics and a major child welfare agency in this research has potential to contribute to improved delivery of substitute care services, locally and internationally.

Title: The anthropology of law and customary land tenure in mid-west Queensland

Summary:

At a time when statutory processes and Courts are requiring identification and proof of the existence of traditional laws and customs, the anthropology of law in Australia is seriously under-developed. This project provides fine-grained cross-cultural research into Aboriginal Law, cultural change and the transmission/continuity of title to land. Research will be conducted amongst people of Queensland's mid-west. Languages recorded for this region include Kutchala, Jirindali, Mbara/Mtjamba. The study provides an important starting point for further collaborations between universities, Aboriginal representative organisations, and industries interested in facilitating the native title process, sponsoring reconciliation, and generating economic/social certainty for all Australians.

Title: Economic diversification and the wildflower industry in the South West and Great Southern regions, Western Australia

Summary:

The project aims to provide a major review of the wildflower industry in the South West and Great Southern regions, WA, within the context of regional processes of economic restructuring and demographic change. The industry provides a case study of the processes of economic restructuring affecting parts of rural Australia with the relative decline in traditional forms of employment in the timber and agricultural industries. The wildflower industry has considerable theoretical and policy significance because of its role in the social and economic renewal of small rural communities. Outcomes include two major reports for the industry partners and a thesis.

Title: The relationship between Volunteers' experiences and commitment at the Olympic Games: Building a model for recruiting and retaining event volunteers.

Summary:

Sport events have become a core component of the social and economic development strategy for Australian cities, regions, and states. The volunteer contribution to sport in Australia has been valued at $1.6 billion. In order to retain and improve the contribution that volunteers make, it is necessary to understand what volunteers expect and value from their volunteer work, and the ways that working on an event may affect their expectations and sense of personal benefit. This research will discover the values, expectations, and commitment processes of volunteers by studying 1000 volunteers working for the 2000 Olympic Games. The data will be used to develop a model to enhance the management and evaluation of volunteer recruitment and retention for sport events.

Title: Natural hazard vulnerability, awareness and mitigation strategies for remote and indigenous communities in Northern Australia

Summary:

Remote communities in Northern Australia regularly experience the impact of tropical cyclones and floods, but because of their smallness and remoteness must deal with the crisis with the minimum of external support. This study will improve our knowledge of how remote communities cope with cyclone and flood impact and will measure levels of awareness and preparedness, and social and community vulnerability. The study will develop a model of how predominantly indigenous communities deal with and prepare for cyclones and it will give guide the preparation of educational material and information oriented towards indigenous and remote communities.

Title: Emigration from Australia: Economic Implications

Summary:

The long term and permanent migration of people out of Australia has increased substantially in recent years. At present little is known about the scale, composition and significance of that movement. The present study seeks to fill this gap through analysis of secondary data and surveys of the individuals involved. The study seeks to analyse the economic, demographic and social characteristics of persons leaving Australia on a permanent or long-term basis, both Australian-born and overseas-born persons. The study will seek to explain this movement and establish its economic effects on Australia.

Summary:

This project will document the contemporary system of coastal and marine tenure among the Yolngu Aboriginal people of Blue Mud Bay in eastern Arnham Land and relate it to resource usage, resource management and the historical development of the regional subsistence system over the last 6000 years. Today Aboriginal people own over 80% of the foreshore of the Northern Territory yet little is known about their usage and tenure of the sea. The project will address theoretical issues relating to the relationship between practice and structure, use and ownership, trade and processes of social transformation and co-management of the sea.

Title: Gender Equity and Public Institutions in NSW: Enhancing Democratic Participation

Summary:

This project will (a) study women's participation in public-sector decision making and its relationship to the representation of women's and men's interests, (b) explore the causes of women's limited participation in public-sector decision making, and (c) generate fresh approaches to the problem of gender and participation. The study will contribute to scholarly knowledge and understanding of the relationship between gender, public decision making and democratic participation. On this basis, it will assist policy makers to identify how and where they may intervene to increase women's participation. It should contribute substantially to developing modes of governance that will enhance the democratic character of Australian public institutions.

Title: Extending our understanding and use of risk assessment in Juvenile Justice

Summary:

The NSW Department of Juvenile Justice is attempting to predict risk of re-offending by using a psychometric approach for tabulating risk factors. Such measures are sound theoretically and empirically, but little is know about their use in the field to manage risk and reduce criminal behaviour. We will: i) examine how juvenile justice officers integrate standardised risk assessment into case management, ii) develop a case management approach that integrates risk assessment with offender readiness for change. This project begins where previous risk assessment research has left off. It investigates the interface between the technology of risk assessment and the field practice involved in reducing juvenile crime.

Title: Peer Victimization and Depression in Adolescence

Summary:

The high incidence of depression in adolescence is a matter of grave community concern. In this project, peer victimization, which has previously been shown to cause depression, will be investigated with the aim of developing, implementing, and evaluating the effectiveness of an intervention designed to reduce the risk of ongoing victimization for vulnerable adolescents. This will be the first time such a study has focussed primarily on prevention, with adolescents who are identified as being at risk being taught a range of skills that enhance coping abilities, build resilience, and increase their ability to access appropriate support.

Title: Understanding organisational health: Aligning employee well-being and work group effectiveness

Summary:

Organisational health research investigates mechanisms through which interventions enhance both employee well-being (e.g., satisfaction) and organisational effectiveness (e.g., performance). Little research has addressed the link between HR interventions, employee well-being, and group effectiveness over time. The Queensland Department of Main Roads is collaborating with QUT to investiage the way in which two specific HR interventions (i.e., leadership training and participative decision making practices) can enhance both work group effectiveness and employee well-being. In addition, the Queensland Office of the Public Service is participating in the collaboration to investigate intervention strategies that can enhance organisational health across the public sector.

Title: Alcohol Ignition Interlock Devices as an Intervention to Reduce Drink Driving Recidivism in Australia

Summary:

Drink driving remains a major contributor to fatalities and injuries on Australian roads and solving this intractable problem is of vital importance. Policy makers have proposed that the use of breath alcohol ignition interlock devices [BAIIDs] which restrict vehicle use to drivers with a pre-set BAC is the most promising counter-measure to the problem of the hard core offender. This reserach proposes a randomised control trial of court mandated BAIIDs to determine the effectiveness of these devices in reducing drink driving by recidivist offenders. The trial will be integrated with the QUT "Under the Limit" rehabilitation program in Queensland courts and Drager the Australian manufacturer will provide the BAIIDs and the instrument maintenance support. A model for court mandated BAIIDs will be developed for use across Australia.

Title: The psychological benefits of a cochlear implant: predicting and maximising successful adjustment to hearing recovery by cochlear implant recipients

Summary:

In comparison to the negative psychological effects of hearing loss, the psychological benefits of hearing recovery are poorly understood. The project aims to understand the psychological benefits of hearing recovery associated with a cochlear implant, identify the factors that predict successful adjustment to hearing recovery, and develop measures and intervention tools to assist Cochlear Limited in optimising the psychological benefits of a cochlear implant. This project will fill a gap in the scientific literature on the recovery of hearing and will generate practical commercial tools that will increase the value of a cochlear implant to hearing impaired individuals.

Title: Optimising Motivation and Performance in Work and Sport

Summary:

Sporting organisations want athletes to succeed. Businesses want employees to perform at their potential. Both business and sport need to make decisions about talent identification and selection. This project advances theory and practice by identifying individual differences and motivational climate factors predictive of high levels of persistence and performance. The study will extend theses findings by the development and testing of an intervention to enhance the variables identified as best predicting persistence and performance. This project will also be the first to systematically determine if the motivational processes affecting performance are the same in sport and work.

Title: Employee responses to an organizational merger: An intergroup perspective

Summary:

The aim of the research is to test the utility of an intergroup model of employee responses to an organizational merger in the context of the large-scale merger between two hospitals. According to the model, ingroup favouritism and employee responses to the merger will be influenced by premerger organizational status, employees' beliefs about the characteristics of the intergroup relations in the merged organization, and the extent and type of intergroup contact. The research is important and timely, given that the goal of understanding employee responses to organizational mergers remains a considerable challenge for organizational psychologists.

Title: Defining and applying the relationship between the molecular structure of odorants and the properties of fragrances and deodorants

Summary:

The mechanisms underlying the key properties of fragrances and deodorants, namely, suppression and enhancement of the odorous components, have not been resolved. Accordingly, product development is achieved by personnel with many years of expensive in-house training and 'educated' trial and error approaches. Recent research indicates the molecular structure of odorants is likely to play a key role in fragrance properties. Accordingly, the project aims to determine the relationship between molecular structure and the key properties of fragrances using a multidisciplinary approach involving Givaudan-Roure and the Universities of Western Sydney and Sydney, and apply this knowledge to the development of new fragrances.

Summary:

This project seeks to investigate the relationship between current representations of masculine sexuality and sexual behaviour, particularly examining how representations influence sexual communication, sexual identity, and problems/anxieties associated with sex. The project will focus on a sample of self-identified heterosexual men drawn from Greater Western Sydney. In collaboration with Family Planning NSW, the research will involve a substantial survey and a series of in-depth interviews. At a fundamental level the project will seek to improve our understanding of masculine sexuality and sexual identity, while also providing new insights into the facilitation of communication about sex and sexuality in relationships.

Summary:

Many dogs are restricted to suburban backyards. This project will involve the collaboration of scientists and industry partners with practical and regulatoryresponsibilities in improving behaviour and welfare. The incidence ofbehavioural problems, that are indicative of maladaptation, will be quantified and together with some physiological and health indices of welfare, will be usedto assess the risks to the welfare of suburban dogs. The relationships betweenthis assessment and environmental factors (e.g. social and human contact, space and environmental stimulation) will be examined to identify those factors thatneed to be targeted to improve dog behaviour and welfare.

Summary:

Copyright law plays a pivotal role in regulating the creation and circulation of artistic objects. Despite this, there has been no detailed research on how contracts impact upon the creation and circulation of works protected by copyright in the arts industries. This lack of research has hindered reforms made in the area. This project will carry out the first socio-legal research into the way contracts impact upon the circulation of works protected by copyright in the arts and cultural industries. The project will also examine the form that these contracts ought to take in the digital environment.

Summary:

Transparency International's corruption perception index (CPI) is a much-cited indication as a comparative measure of corruption in 52 countries. With the development of Integrity Audit indices the project will provide a powerful suite of research tools for measuring corruption. Intensive workshops will assist the development of these tools and their use in designing and testing ethics/integrity regimes to combat corruption - not least in our region. This project will refine the CPI and add a new "bribery propensity" index (of corporative bribe givers). This project strengthens an existing collaborative relationship between TI based on NILEPA's work in institutionalising corporate and public ethics.

Title: Opportunities for harmonisation of intellectual property laws protecting biotechnology innovations in the Asia Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) region

Summary:

Developments in biotechnology have outpaced the process of international harmonisation of intellectual property (IP) laws. Lack of harmonisation within the APEC region is a serious impediment to the development of an export-focussed Australian biotechnology industry. Introduction of IP laws protecting biotechnology is imminent in many APEC countries. This timely project will be the first comprehensive comparative analysis of the opportunities for harmonisation of those laws. Through the involvement of the Industry Partner, the outcomes will feed into the international and regional processes for development of IP biotechnology laws, thus providing a real contribution to Australia's economic advancement.

Summary:

This project will undertake research that is long overdue: a systematic study of the operation of laws dealing with guarantees and other forms of third party securities. This will be the first comprehensive empirical study of this area of law. It will be undertaken collaboratively with the NSWLRC as part of its reference on third party guarantees. The research has the potential to play a key role in informing legal reforms that will both ease the burdens on those involved in financing small business and provide for greater legal and commercial certainty (and therefore less costly litigation).

Title: Ethics and Corporate Governance for Public Agencies.

Summary:

Earlier public sector ethics work by this team and the OPS has received international recognition (including OECD, World Bank). This collaboration involves a major new agency partner and significant new research directions. It will examine the means of institutionalising ethics within individual agencies (following the earlier system wide work). It will consider the insights of organisation and management theory for building ethics into public institutions. It also examines the role of professional ethicists in building ethics into this process and the interaction between different professionalisms within the public agencies (thereby fostering strategic links with the professional association of public ethicists).

Title: Community-based mediation: bargaining in the shadow of the law?

Summary:

Federal Government proposals for a shift in family and child mediation away from the Family Court reflect the assumption that community-based services will reduce conflict and encourage resolution of disputes outside the legal system. Yet existing research suggests that other forms of out of court dispute resolution are typically influenced by "the shadow of the law". This project tests assumptions about community-based mediation by exploring the influence (if any) of law on entry into mediation, and the effect of the legal entitlements on mediation process and outcomes. The project's findings will provide a much-needed empirical basis for future policy development.

Title: Reshaping juvenile justice: A study of the New South Wales Young Offenders Act 1997

Summary:

This project is concerned with examining the latest attempt in New South Wales to reform juvenile justice practices. The Young Offenders Act 1997 provides a framework for regulating police discretion and the innovative use of 'youth justice confencing' to mobilise families of young offenders, victims and the community to negotiate justice outcomes. The study will use a combination of statistical, case histories and interview data to analyse the implementation and outcomes of the Act. The results will help identify the strengths and weaknesses of legal regulation as a tool for reform and the conditions under which legal regulation can reshape practice.

Title: NSW Police internal investigations into serious drug related offences: a quantitative and qualitative study

Summary:

This combined CSU-Internal Affairs (NSW Police Service) study offers a comprehensive, systematic description of police criminality in relation to serious drug related crime in the NSW Police Service for 1993 - 1999, and of the immediate and long term impact of internal investigations on officers investigated and their work environments. The study will generate profiles of police officers at risk, and successful internal investigators. It involves a quantitative study of all internal investigations into serious drug related crime 1993 - 1999 and an (integrated) qualitative study of 20 cases. The results will include important empirical findings, analyses and policy recommendations.

Title: Defining, Measuring and Preventing Official Misconduct in Correctional Institutions

Summary:

While the behaviour of police officers has been subject to extensive scrutiny in recent years, almost nothing is known systematically about official misconduct amongst prison officers. This project aims to investigate the nature and extent of official misconduct in corrections, and to develop ongoing prevention and monitoring strategies. The study will address the involvement by corrections' staff in such behaviours as trafficking, bribery, drug and alcohol use, mistreatment of prisoners, harassment of other staff, stealing, and misuse of prison facilities. This would be the first systematic examinations of correctional misconduct in Australia, and one of the few such studies anywhere.

Title: The spatial distribution of crime in Western Australia: Developing a nationally valid model for forecasting rural crime trends

Summary:

Crime patterns in rural and regional Australia are distinctly different from those in metropolitan areas. Reporting patterns and perceptions of crime also vary widely. This project will log these matters by way of crime-mapping, data-linking, survey methodology and analysis. Social, health, educational, economic and cultural risk factors for crime (including the 'flight from the bush')will be identified, validated across regional and metropolitan areas. A statistical model will be developed to predict small area crime trends and to facilitate placement of cost-effective local crime prevention programs.This research fits the theoretical model known as 'environmental criminology' and aims to produce practical applications and outcomes.

Title: Automating improvements to the authority and interactivity of legislation-like instruments, to benefit government and business performance

Summary:

Three industry partners have similar problems with particular classes of legislation-like instruments (Acts and Regulations, Treaties, and Industrial Awards) vital to their organisations and its clientele. In each case the effective computerised use of these legislation-like instruments is impeded by similar problems that undermine their reliability (including change over time, and interaction with the case law which authoritatively interprets them). This research aims to provide generalised and automated interaction between classes of legal documents and information about its authority, and point-in-time legislative instruments built on that basis. Implementation on AustLII will provide immediate benefits to Australia.

Title: Young Children's Interactive and Informal Learning in Museums: A Joint-venture Research and Training Program

Summary:

The learning outcomes of young children visiting museums are unknown internationally. Museums infrequently offer innovative ways for children to participate and for their learning to be tracked. A collaborative museums-university team will answer fundamental questions about museum programs and children's learning styles and dispostitions. Using new technologies to study the quality of children's visits, the processes of their learning and the dynamics of partnerships, the team will produce new programs that build partnerships between families, schools and these public assets. Results should generate innovative models for the international museum arena and challenge school education to re-construct traditional views about learning.

Title: Investigation of the problems associated with aboriginal bark paintings in museum custody and the development of strategies for their conservation

Summary:

Australian museums have in their custody aboriginal artefacts which have both a significant cultural heritage value and a high monetary value. Of these, the National Museum of Australia and the National Gallery of Australia have important collections of bark paintings found recently to be in need of conservation. No systematic study of techniques for conservation of this class of artefact exists. We propose to implement an integrated program of analysis and conservation on these artefacts to identify the barks, pigments and binders used by different communities for their paintings, and to develop appropriate strategies for their long-term preservation and storage.

Title: Asian Accounts of Australia: Change, Comparison, and Analysis

Summary:

The dominant Australian understanding of Asian opinion about this country has been Australia-based, and therefore one-sided. Important sources of Asian views about Australia exist in the collection of the National Library of Australia (NLA) but receive limited exposure because they are in Asian languages and scripts, accessible only by specialist researchers. This project aims to identify these sources in Chinese and Japanese, to analyse their contents, and by electronic means, to expose them more widely to scholars and the public. Tangible outcomes will include an analytic monograph, an annotated reader of translated texts, electronically accessible synopses and bibliographies, and seminars; opportunities for future research and development of collecting strategies; and improved access to data for use in policy formation by relevant government departments.

Title: The Big Picture: A Planning Matrix for the Visual Arts

Summary:

The visual arts have never played a more significant role in the economic and social life of the nation yet there are indices in the industry that demonstrate negative impact such as globalisation, tax regimes, economic rationalism, technological change, and in reduced exhibition attendance, downturns in sales, training course closures. The investigators will examine the causes of the contradiction and, on the basis of empirical research and qualitative analysis, construct a matrix/framework as a coherent, big picture of the visual arts (for policy makers, administrators, professionals) and a blueprint for a unique information system for the general public.

Summary:

The project will develop a system for archiving electronic texts, allowing for the addition of markup after publication by any number of hands simultaneously and remotely, without compromising the integrity of the original text. Using ISO standard coding systems, the documents will be transferable across the widest range of computer platforms and yet able to be encoded in the most specialist ways, without becoming either corrupted or opaque to the human reader. The sofware will be tested in the creation of an enriched version of a classic literary document of a kind impossible in physical book-format.

Summary:

This project will be the first investigation of the wider industry and cultural impact of the new broadcasting content standard introduced in March 1999 to meet Australia's obligations under the Closer Economic Relations agreement with New Zealand. In examining the manner in which content regulations achieve their cultural objectives of maintaining a local presence and identity in television, it will make an innovative and substantial contribution to the international study of new content regulation models. The project's final report will inform the standard's required review process, and provide a context for debate on the impact of the changes.

Summary:

The project will research and document the history of one of Western Australia's most important heavy industrial workplaces in order to examine aspects of Australian working life over the course of twentieth century, in order to publish preliminary papers and ultimately a major history of the Westrail Workshops at Midland. The Workshops played a major role in the development of the State, building and maintaining the railway engines and rolling stock which facilitated both metropolitan and regional development. Constructed in 1904 by the State's best known engineer, C Y O'Connor, they operated with up to 3500 workers until 1994. The project aims to collect interviews, documents and ephemera related to the Workshops and their staff, as the basis for its research.

Title: Mental illness, asylum and community - a history of Wolston Park Hospital, Queensland, 1865-2000

Summary:

Contemporary preference for non-institutional modes of dealing with mental illness takes place against a history of removal and institutionalisation of the mentally ill. This project investigates the history of a major psychiatric facility, Wolston Park Hospital in Brisbane. It will provide for the first time in Australia a comprehensive account of the development and changing contexts of an institution that has been the core of public provision for the mentally ill. Outcomes that will enhance 'mental health literacy' include a published history and an exhibition at the Hospital site serving community education needs, including training of health professionals and carers.

Summary:

The Endeavour Project extends collaborative research undertaken between the Centre for Cross-Cultural Research in the National Library since late 1997. It has two aims. Firstly, it exploits the potential of digital hypermedia as research medium to open new lines of research into James Cook's and Samuel Wallis' Pacific voyages (1766-1771), and how the resulting encounters with Indigenous Australian and Oceanic peoples influenced European intellectual and cultural history. Secondly, the outcomes of these new directions in research will be used to develop scholarly editing standards for digital historical editions, and a networked environment facilitating their national implementation.

Title: Surgical Practice in a changing health system: resolving the ethical questions

Summary:

Current reform of the healthcare system aims at containing costs without the loss of quality or universal access. Such reform involves introducing the market principles of competition into the healthcare sector and shifting decision making from the providers of health care to its funders. These reforms have generated a new set of difficult ethical problems for surgeons: in particular an undermining of their traditional loyalty and duty to the individual patient. This research will develop both an account of the ethical challenges and a practical ethical framework within which surgeons may reflect on, and resolve, these problems.
