This paper introduces the papers based on a series of lectures held by the Centre for Economic Policy Research at the Australian National University in 2001 to commemorate the wide-ranging economic contribution of the late Professor F.H. (“Fred”) Gruen. The theme of the lectures was ‘Welfare and the Labour Market: the New Frontier for Reform?’ This topic is of great contemporary policy interest as, for some time now, successive Australian governments have been attempting to build a constituency for welfare reforms that will fundamentally influence the nature of Australia’s welfare system and the values upon which it is built. Specifically, there is sustained emphasis on moving away from income support towards facilitating economic independence of welfare recipients by market work. The papers which comprise this special issue of the Australian Journal of Labour Economics set the scene for an informed, objective and comprehensive Australian work to welfare debate.
