Interview with Hielke Buddelmeyer on 'Educating oneself out of social exclusion'

By Hielke Buddelmeyer Multimedia 2 November 2012


In this phone interview, Hielke Buddelmeyer, talks about the impact of education and training on social exclusion using a multidimensional measure that focuses on seven domains. Education, he says, is a 'sleeper factor' in that it operates on many different levels and has an impact on the other six domains, such as health. Hielke also points out that the current focus on human capital, including social inclusion, follows previous market reforms that have been implemented to position Australia in changing economic times.
