The Temporary Sponsored Parent Visa, Migrant Grandparents and Transnational Family Life

M Hamilton, A Kintominas & D Brennan
In Australia, reliance on grandparents for childcare is widespread. But with more than 1 in 4 Australian residents born overseas, grandparent care is not always readily available. Policy shifts have seen a tightening of visa pathways available for migrant grandparents. Permanent parent visas now involve a wait-time of 30+ years, unless a grandparent (or their sponsor) can afford a very expensive contributory parent visa. This has constrained many migrants’ means of maintaining intergenerational relationships in...

An empirical assessment of the TALK TEST ENJOY sexual health promotion campaign conducted among young people aged 18-29 years as part of the Trending Sexual Health initiative.

PCG Adam, JBF de Wit, TA Montoya, I Ketsuwan, DS Hamilton & R Hardy
Sexually transmissible infections (STIs) are prevalent among young people in Australia and the strengthening of sexual health promotion targeting young people is a national public health priority. As part of these efforts, the FRANK – TALK TEST ENJOY (TTE) campaign was conducted in 2018 to promote talking about STIs, using condoms and testing for STIs among young people aged 18-29 years old. An evaluation study was conducted among 744 young people to assess the level...

Estimating the coverage of the FRANK sexual health promotion initiative and its contribution to strengthening sexual health-related attitudes and behaviours among respondents of the 2018 Warming Up survey.

PCG Adam, JBF de Wit, TA Montana, I Ketsuwan, DS Hamilton & R Hardy
A sexual health promotion initiative called Frank was conducted in 2018 to promote a range of sexual health-related behaviours among young people aged 18-29 years in Australia. A survey was conducted among 1, 147 participants to estimate the level of awareness of the Frank initiative and assess its potential impact on attitudes, intentions and behaviours of young people in Australia. Of the participants, 8.4% reported having heard of the Frank website, including 4.0% who had...

Porous media combustion-based thermophotovoltaic (PMC-TPV) reactor experiment

Robert Taylor, N.J. Ekins-Daukes, Shaun Chan & Appu Paduthol
Temperature, PV electric energy and spectrum measurements: The high temperatures of combustion systems make them suitable for coupling with thermophotovoltaic systems. In practice, it is quite challenging to reduce heat losses and the spectral mismatch between the emission of the combustion source and the spectral response of photovoltaic (PV) cells. In an effort to pull these disparate energy-focussed research fields together, this paper explores the use of a low-cost erbia (Er2O3) coating on a novel...

Urban space interventions, appropriation and the creation of differential space: an analysis of Berlin

Tinalee Gallico
This thesis considers the implications of ‘do-­it-­yourself’ spatial practices for progressive urban and social futures. Emergent methods of space creation and adaptation by the users of space are viewed as an alternative means by which individuals and groups can become an agent of urban change. They provide a self-­construed way to shape space as opposed to acting ‘with’ or ‘against’ current normative processes of urban development. Henri Lefebvre’s concepts of appropriation and differential space are...

A cognitive approach to improving young novice drivers' risk management

Prasannah Prabhakharan
Every day, just over 1,000 young people under the age of 25 years lose their lives as a result of road crashes around the world. One theme that has gained significant attention to address this ‘young novice driver problem’ is that its resolution does not lie solely in developing the physical skill of driving but through the development of the cognitive skills necessary to drive. As such, the present research aimed to investigate the utility...

Improved techniques to estimate mean sea level, velocity and acceleration from long ocean water level time series to augment sea level (and climate change) research

Phillip Watson
The prominence of the climate change issue has placed more emphasis on examination of the extensive global repository of mean sea level records, which along with temperature and carbon dioxide, remain the key proxy data sets used to monitor and quantify changes in the global climate system. Over the past decade, the scientific literature is replete with conflicting conclusions regarding the detection (or otherwise) of a measurable acceleration in mean sea level attributable to climate...

Review of implementation of the National Disability Strategy 2010-2020: Final report

L Davy, K Fisher, A Wehbe, C Purcal, S Robinson, R Kayess & D Santos
The Department of Social Services (DSS) commissioned the Social Policy Research Centre (SPRC) to conduct a review of the implementation of the National Disability Strategy 2010-2020 (Strategy). The aim was to examine effective implementation processes and measures of the Strategy to inform the reform that will develop a new national disability framework for beyond 2020. The review methodology consisted of a desktop review of documents about the implementation of the Strategy and targeted stakeholder consultations....
