Produktbeschreibung
New Zealand has experienced both sweeping economic and social reform, as well as growing poverty and income inequality in the last twenty years, and can be seen as a social laboratory. The reforms include changes in social security provision and coverage. This book explores these social security changes in the context of widening national and international poverty and inequality. It argues that the policy initiatives have altered the nature of social security and in doing so have significantly transformed the nature of social citizenship. Poverty, Policy and the State demonstrates the important implications the New Zealand directions have for the development of social security internationally. It will be of considerable interest for all those interested in international reshaping of state support for the poorest and most vulnerable, and will contribute to those debates and analyses.
