When Disaster Strikes: Geographies of under-insurance in a volatile age (2017 - 2019)$327,451
Description
When natural disasters strike, house and contents insurance provides a key safety net of modern Australian life.Yet many households are under insured or not insured at all. The geographies of inadequate insurance, includingcrucial post-disaster impacts, remains unknown. What is known is that governments and communities tend tobear the costs. This project will collect national data to determine rates of non- and under-insurance, identify keyindicators and factors that influence these rates, and investigate disaster survivors insurance experiences. Thisresearch will strategically improve disaster policy and practice, and contribute to reducing the financial and socialcosts of disasters to governments, communities and householders.

Changing Political Careers in Australia (2010 - 2012)$100,000
Description
The project examines changes in the recruitment and careers of top Australian politicians, especially in the context of claims of 'de-professionalisation', as indicated by a proliferation of 'periodic' (vs 'career' and 'lifelong') politicians, frequent lateral entries and early exits.
