Indigenous wellbeing in Australia: Evidence from HILDA

CAEPR events - Mon, 2015-07-13 10:13
19 Aug 15 Matthew Manning Chris Fleming

This seminar explores the subjective wellbeing of Indigenous Australians. We focus on mean levels of self-reported life satisfaction, inequality in life satisfaction within the Indigenous and non-Indigenous Australian populations, and the prevalence and severity of dissatisfaction with one’s life. Evidence on differences in the determinants of life satisfaction between Indigenous and non-Indigenous Australians is provided. Results indicate that Indigenous life satisfaction peaked in 2003 and has since declined.

If the market is the problem, is the hybrid economy the solution?

CAEPR events - Mon, 2015-07-13 10:01
12 Aug 15 Katherine Curchin

Jon Altman has argued that an ideological commitment to the market has blinded many policy makers to the viable alternatives to market-based development in Australia’s north. This seminar examines the distinctive approach to economic development he advocates – the hybrid economy approach. This approach emphasises the importance of the customary sector of regional economies and the way the customary sector is linked to the state and market sectors.

Are affirmative action and employment programs for Indigenous Australians finally having some effect?

CAEPR events - Mon, 2015-07-13 09:55
05 Aug 15 Anne Daly Tesfaye Gebremedhin

Indigenous Australians suffer from high unemployment rates and low employment rates compared to other Australians. According to the 2011 Census, the employment/population ratio for Indigenous people aged 15 years and over was 44.2 per cent compared to 61.7 per cent for other Australians and the unemployment rate was 2.6 times greater (9.1 per cent compared to 3.5 per cent). These differences have been long standing and there has been a long history of government policies and reviews to try to change these outcomes with limited success.

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. This is not surprising in light of the genesis and modes of operation of this industry. 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.

Palestinian Statehood and going to the ICC

CAIS - events - Tue, 2015-07-07 14:30
Event type:  Lecture Date and time:  Thursday, July 23, 2015 - 17:30 - 18:30 Venue:  Centre for Arab & Islamic Studies, Ellery Cres, Building 127, ANU, Canberra Speaker:  Prof. Lawrence Davidson, West Chester University, PA

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.
