Description

Evidence for (and against) systems change: addressing severe and multiple disadvantage

How can we promote a more critical approach to understanding the interlocking nature of severe disadvantages? How do we increase knowledge in this field without stigmatising and ‘othering’ people? And what is the relationship of this is to systemic change? In this keynote address, Julian Corner will discuss the use and abuse of evidence in social policy. Julian will draw on the work of Lankelly Chase and its approach to change, including the use of action inquiries to explore what it might take to change systems that perpetuate severe and multiple disadvantage.

Supported by UNSW Canberra and Power to Persuade

When: 2.30pm-4.00pm, Monday 14 October 2019
