Church-related social welfare agencies in Australia: A historical perspective on their development and their relationship with the state

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

In this paper, I provide an account of the development of church-related social welfare agencies from European settlement to the commencement of the contracting era in the 1990s. In doing so, I explore the ideological, ecclesiastical and geographical in uences that contributed to what emerged as a ‘mixed economy of welfare’, in which the state, while a significant actor, shares the provision of welfare with not-for-profit agencies. I then turn my attention to the constitutional arrangements underpinning church-state engagement in Australia that sit in the background to this structure.
