|Title:||Contesting the Neo-liberal Lash-up: Policy paradoxes and possibilities||Contributor(s):||Heimans, Stephen (author)||Publication Date:||2011||Handle Link:||https://hdl.handle.net/1959.11/14040||Abstract:||This article draws on ideas generated through a current education policy research study and from philosophers Jacque Rancière and Isabelle Stengers. It argues that in the neo-liberal hegemony, distinctive policy practices (for example bureaucratic policy making and teaching) are being genericised and that the nation-state (Australia) is being de-politicised through consensus. Four policy paradoxes that are based on theorisations of practice are suggested as possible political 'nodes of contestation'.||Publication Type:||Journal Article||Source of Publication:||Social Alternatives, 30(4), p. 15-19||Publisher:||Social Alternatives||Place of Publication:||Australia||ISSN:||1836-6600
