The other purpose is to assist the reader to a greater understanding of the public policy- making process in Australia. The document was created for laypersons who wish to understand more about how to lobby or advocate the issues of interest to them or just understand more of what is taking place in the Australian political context. This is achieved through presenting a case study of the policy process of the recent insurance crisis to draw attention to how issues become publicly understood and how those understandings influence response of government.
