Guidelines for Policy analysis paper
Critically analyse the following social policies:
• Youth allowance
Use the structure and guidelines below for your assignment.
1. Outline the historical development of the policy including other linked policies (eg Youth Allowance and Work for the Dole ) highlighting key changes (600 words).
You should provide a succinct background to your chosen policy highlighting key changes over time (especially over the past 10-15 years) and very briefly outline the connections/links between your chosen policy and others. You should use a wide range of sources especially from government departments/agencies.
2. Critically discuss key issues and issue drivers identified within the policy and government literature in relation to relevant commentary and scholarly literature. In particular critically examine the core values, beliefs and assumptions underpinning the policy (1,000 words).
Here you need to outline the issues, and issue drivers, that the policy is responding to. You need to research the scholarly literature (including journals) to gain insights into these issues and issue constructions and most importantly the critiques and analyses of the policy by researchers, peak bodies, and other stakeholders.
3. Discuss key findings from evaluation of the policy – including government and non-government evaluations – highlighting strengths and weakness (600 words).

General comments
It is likely that most of you will locate and use a large number and variety of sources – for example, government agency fact sheets and policy statements; media releases; scholarly journal articles and books; reports and evaluation from research groups/centres, and so on. I would expect your reference list to number between 20 – 30 sources however, some sources like fact sheets will be very brief often only a page long.
You must include quality scholarly sources, for example, refereed journal articles and books, typically 6 – 10 sources.
