Social Work : Parliamentary Sources

Parliamentary Information in Social Work Research

Parliamentary sources relate to many areas of social work practice. Parliaments enact laws, debate policy and proposed legislation.  Parliaments also review, report on and investigate many policy issues through parliamentary committees.  Parliamentary debates, reports from committees, bills digests may all provide information on significant changes in policy that may  have  impact on social work. The federal and all state and territory parliaments disseminate a range of information via their websites.

 The Parliamentary Library produces research publications for Parliamentarians.  These publications include overviews of policy areas and chronologies of key Social welfare provisions. Both are useful  for locating background information on a policy area.
