Social Welfare in New Zealand, 1840-2000
Investigates the changing nature of social welfare, both state and voluntary, in New Zealand society from 1840 to 2000. It addresses reasons why certain concerns were at the forefront of public and political attention at different times. The course examines assumptions about women and Māori as well as unemployed, poor and sick people that underlay welfare provision through time.
