Within Australia the adoption of the social inclusion framework in social policy has been slow (Bradshaw 2003).

The Australian policy and research communities have been somewhat sceptical of the concept. Whiteford (2001), for example, says that the traditionally dominant income measurement approach to poverty should not be discarded lightly.
