“The income support system is in need of major reform to deliver better outcomes for all Australians now and into the future…  It should provide adequate support while encouraging more people to work to their capacity.…  It should also reflect broader community expectations that those who can work should do so, in order to become more self-reliant, and that people should care for their children.” 

Interim Report of the Reference Group on Welfare Reform to the Minister for Social Service, 2014, p.5.

In Egypt after Mubarak, there is a greater space for civil society groups to work and fulfil their mission.

Islamic Finance: Religious identity, petrodollars, and legal arbitrage

CAIS - events - Wed, 2015-07-08 12:25
Event type:  Lecture Date and time:  Thursday, July 30, 2015 - 18:00 - 19:00 Venue:  China in the World Auditorium, Building 188, Fellows Lane, ANU Speaker:  Mahmoud Amin El-Gamal, Professor of Economics and Statistics, Rice University,

Recent empirical studies have shown that Islamic finance, despite its widely-advertised growth, has not improved financial inclusion of Muslims, who remain among the most excluded financially.

Islamic finance was born in the second half of the twentieth century as a child of nationalist-Islamic identity politics, on the one hand, and petrodollar flows on the other.

The Palestinian decision to go before the International Criminal Court and charge Israel with war crimes has implications that go beyond Palestine-Israel conflict. The decision to bring Israel before the ICC brings to the forefront the question whether or not international criminal law will be applied, not only to weak nations lacking powerful protectors, but also to the powerful and their clients.
